The Rotary Club of Greensboro Carousel is being built to celebrate the 100th annisversary of the Rotary Club of Greensboro. Established in February 1917, it is one of the oldest and largest Rotary Clubs in the world.
The City of Greensboro, the Rotary Club of Greensboro, and donors from throughout the area are creating a unique fun carousel, a beautiful work of art to be built then donated to the Greensboro Science Center. The location will centrally tie the newly created Battleground Park District (BPD) combining Greensboro Country Park, Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, Tannenbaum Historic Park, and the Greensboro Science Center (GSC) into one 400-acre park destination for North Carolina. The citizens of Greensboro voted in November 2016 to provide the city with $5 million to start the planning and implementation of BPD. The city has agreed to provide land for the carousel on top of a hill overlooking the lake behind GSC.
The Atlantic and Yadkin Greenway trail is currently planning to expand from Greeensboro’s Downtown and will bring walkers, joggers, and cyclist to BPD.
