Custom Carousel Character On The Rose Kennedy Greenway

CL Waterfront Properties, LLC is proud to announce their role in the new Custom Carousel on the Rose Kennedy Greenway event. The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy has commissioned a custom, one-of-a-kind carousel for the Greenway. This carousel will be much different than the Carousel’s we are accustomed to seeing. The hand-carved creatures of this carousel are inspired by the Wildlife of Boston Harbor, the Shawmut Peninsula, and the imaginations of Boston’s children. Conservancy staff asked Boston Public School students from the North End, South Boston, Beacon Hill, and Dorchester for their ideas. These ideas are what inspired carousel expert and sculptor, Jeffrey Briggs, when creating the animals for the new carousel.

Once complete, the carousel will be New England’s only handicapped accessible carousel. A generous, anonymous donor has pledged to match all funds raised up to $300,000. Next time you walk by the CL Waterfront’s office don’t be alarmed when you see a sculptured skunk next to the pictures of our beautiful luxury properties. He’s soon to be our new neighbor, along with his other wildlife friends. Contact CL Waterfront Properties for more info!
