    This is a great shopping center with some good food options and some high end shops. Being an open air mall makes it a great place to explore on a nice Spring Day. They have plenty of EV chargers and most were open which was nice. I went to grab some things at the container store but had a great time exploring the whole area. I just ate at Chipotle but there were other places I would have liked to try where I there longer. Worth a look if you are in the area.

    I visit this library with my grandmother and sometimes my grandfather will go too. The staff are wonderful to deal with very helpful. Especially tahomi the security guard. She’s always so happy and greeting customers with a warm friendly hello and a pretty smile. When I go in she always greets me with a “ hi friend” how are you and when we leave it’s always “goodbye friend” “ thank you have a nice day see you next time. The selection of Materials is very good you can usually find what you need if not talk to the nice lady or man at the reference desk and they’ll order it for you.
    I checked out the lullaby girl cd and the cd feel what you feel a week before my grandmother passed away and they really helped me get through that I’m so glad you guys have both of those cds.
    I would recommend this place
    See you all soon

    Visited in the morning for coffee and tea for a special holiday event. Really enjoyed the visit and tour by the care takers. Nice small gift shop with local books, it had one that I just purchased for a gift, wished that I had waited. A must for Rhode Islanders and All History buffs! Though a former governor’s house it has more historical value. Visit for a tour and historical connections.

    This place is in a run down area and we made the mistake of parking on the Wellington st side where there was is a small sign, but the actual entrance is in the back. Look for the Annex sign- Place was set up cute- some games and stools at the bar are not comfy- as a tip- the bar set up puts the wood right at your knees. So sit in one of the other comfy spots. Beer was good- we tried a couple IPA’s and they were quite good. They do not do flights, but you can get a half pour

    I was a volunteer at the Park & saw so many wonderful shows. But, probably due to the pandemic shutdowns, it is still closed & now up for auction in June. I hope next owner will continue the tradition.
    I posted this review so people don't plan to visit in the near future only to find it is not operating.

    This is a nice,well run,small library. It does have just about anything you need and the staff is really outstanding. They get you whatever you can not find for yourself and are just so polite. It is just so cute and it makes you want to go back often. A few rooms and a kids room is really nice. Parking is small and limited but never a problem.
    I use the larger library near Garden City a lot as well but this is more than sufficient.for most of the things I need. Just to have a place to relax and read a paper or a special magazine is just so nice.

    The staff is amazing and requests for books are completed in record time! The Warwick library system also offers a wide variety of activities beyond just checking out books.

    This is a crematorium for pets. They are very compassionate and respectful. Highly recommend. Easy to get an appointment. The staff was very sympathetic.

    This is a great farm stand with local and home grown products. It is on the outskirts of Cranston (the part where you ask am I really in Cranston). Great farm stand with great food. Staff was super nice. Will be back
