The facility will include a carousel, a carousel "house," and a party pavilion, and is expected to be completed in 2018. Upon the completion, the Carousel will be gifted to the Greensboro Science Center, a nonprofit that works in partnership with the City of Greensboro.
"We wanted to do something big to celebrate 100 years and we are excited that the Rotary Club of Greensboro Carousel will be a centerpiece of the quickly developing Battlefield Parks District," says Bobby Bain, President of the Club.
