Old time carousel (fairly new construction, hand-made animals, beautiful building) that brings joy to my children. Trying to grab the brass ring for a free ride keeps even the slightly older ones interested. Always fun in the summer.

We regularly bring our granddaughter here 2-3 times a month. We enjoy the ride 4-5 times a visit, enjoy the beautiful horses, enjoy watching them being carved and painted. Always fun to visit the park afterwards.

Went to the carousel with the family and really enjoyed the gift shop, the snacks including cotton candy and popcorn. The carousel is beautiful and fun to ride with unique horses and animals.

This is an old-fashioned carousel filled with wonderfully painted animals and appropriate music. Seats available too. Take a walk around the park before or after and enjoy the river as well.

We visited and was hopeful of taking a ride on this carousel but were surprised when we arrived to see it was closed down
