Parking here was a bit of a task because they had a ton of parking spots blocked off. The mall was good size and like your typical mall. It was cool that it went over the river and you could look out ... read more »

It was your average large city mall. Middle to High end stores. I would bit make a special trip to go there.
The small needs a serious revamp I know everyone wants to talk about it being this amazing place but believe me it may have been a few years ago but times of changed and they have change fast. The parking situation is backwards they should keep the first half an hour free that would be the modern innovative approach and perspective and kinder way of going about it. They should have different paying machines for the actual parking as well they still only have two machines you have to walk up to. To me? Unacceptable. The parking at South teams the place to stars. There was construction going on and it was really loud in the garage which made driving at night a little terrifying and I thought the place might implode. That's a little dramatic but hey then again you never know that stuff does happen! The shops are also dated and I didn't see anything innovated in the food area either I mean yes we all love the typical mall experience but even for me? Someone that doesn't go a lot? You think I'd be excited about the "mall experience" but it just seemed like I was walking through 2001 all over again
I hate this mall.... every time I walk in on my way to the theater and am insulted by the architects by being forced to waste time walking past worthless stores because the escalators intentionally don't connect to each other in an attempt to manipulate consumers, I just end up getting frustrated and hating the entire mall... Also paying for parking at this mall is a bit absurd...
This mall is so large! Some of the stores are just too expensive but it is important to cater to all crowds. The food court has a great range of food options
I absolutely hate this place. Yes, paying for parking is annoying, but understandable. The bigger problem is the parking garage that was clearly designed by a British architectural drop-out. For some reason, traffic flows backwards (you drive on the left side) which is nightmarishly confusing. The good? news is that they have recently corrected this idiosyncrasy. Somehow the correction is even more confusing, but hopefully that is temporary. During the holiday it is impossible to get out of this place in under an hour. One time, I spent an hour trying to get into the mall, just to turn around and leave. The only reason I ever go is to visit the Lego Store and see the occasional movie.
Good place to buy expensive things for your expensive apartment, otherwise it has some niche stores like Newbury Comic's as well as good selection of restaurants and is complete with an IMAX theater and Dave & Busters. It is located in central providence next to the capitol building as well as parks and community space that are worth exploring.
