Rose F. Kennedy Greenway Conservancy Executive Assistant to the Board and Executive Director, Amy Dwyer, presented a progress update on construction of the new carousel on the Greenway.The presentation took place at the January 10, 2013 meeting of the North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA).
The custom carousel, featuring New England animals instead of traditional horses, will replace the rental carousel on the Greenway next to the Harbor Islands Pavilion, between Christopher Columbus Park and Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Construction on the surrounding park and carousel installation will start this Spring with an anticipated opening on Labor Day 2013. In the interim this summer, that section of the Greenway will be cordoned off.
