Park Square, Rhode Island
In the early twentieth century, Park Square was the site of Oak Knoll Farm and the area contained a diner, a gas station, an amusement park, a trolley barn and fairground. A carnival is still held yearly in the area at a local church, and the Woonsocket High School football team plays on nearby Barry Field. Park Square is currently home to many businesses, including Citizen's Bank, Burger King, Wendy's, McDonald's, Pearl's Candy & Nuts, Ocean State Job Lot, Super Stop & Shop, and Landmark Hospital (built in 1965 as Fogarty Hospital).
