A true Rhode Island original

Just outside of Providence, RI, Garden City Center has served the area for 70+ years. A true New England village, GCC brings commerce and community together around a common green space, creating a setting that’s equal parts relaxation and inspiration.

As the exclusive RI location for numerous sought-after national brands and the home to an ever-expanding selection of dining favorites, Garden City has become a true destination for locals and visitors alike. But it’s more than just an exceptional retail experience that keeps people coming back. It’s friendly faces who smile as you wait for a table at your favorite diner. The quaint gazebo where you sip your coffee. Lovely landscaping and plenty of space to push your stroller or walk your dog.

Whether stopping by for a quick errand or spending the day, it’s easy to see why Garden City is the most popular outdoor center in Rhode Island.
