Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Conveniently located on Route 2 in Cranston, Garden City Center is home to over 60 shops, services and eateries. The fabulous stores include Anthropologie, Crate and Barrel, J. Crew, L'Occitane, Sephora, Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, The Container Store, Providence Diamond, b.Good, Bistro 22, LA Fitness and Whole Foods Market. With L.L. Bean opening in late summer 2016 there's only more for Garden City to offer. Garden City Center was one of the first open air shopping experiences of its kind in the country and for generations families have had fond memories of GCC shopping excursions.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Food available for purchase

Garden city is a great place in Cranston with nice stores and restaurants but if you want to park in the main area then give yourself extra time to find a spot in the limited parking lot

Thanks Bobby for your positive review on GCC. The holiday time can be busy with parking at a premium, but you can usually find a spot within a few minutes. We are excited to welcome four new restaurants in 2018!

If you're from the Cranston than you know that Garden City is now the best shopping in the area. If you're not from the area or outside RI and you're looking for somewhere to go shopping, get a bit to eat or to just take a walk to get some steps in then you'll love going there. It has some of the best named stores like Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Banana Republic, Anthropologie just to name a few and also some great restaurants live Avvio, Bistro 22 and of course a Starbucks is there. Parking can be a bit of a challenge at times but you can usually find one after a drive around. It's a great place to go and spend the afternoon.

Garden City is my preferred destination for good shopping vs the mall. Parking this time of year is challenging but the store selection is worth it. Great Santa for families with little ones.

This shopping center is great for everything but clothes. If you’re over a size 14, good luck finding anything.
