Overview

The Gesa Carousel of Dreams is a world class presentation of a restored 107 year-old Charles Carmel hand carved wooden carousel. The antique horses were individually restored over a 10 year period with loving care to bring them back to life. The facility is open to the public and located in the middle of Southridge Sports and Events Complex along the Highway 395 in Kennewick, Washington. The multi-million dollar carousel is available for rides and photographs. Smiles, laughter and fun memories are provided at no charge. Our summer hours are: Thursday, 4-7pm; Friday, 11am-7pm; Saturday, 11am-7pm and Sunday 12-5pm.

Took my granddaughter who is old enough to reach for the brass ring. Was part of a parth package which was expensive in my opinon and so is riding the carousel, but worth at least a visit to see the beautiful restoration.

This is a place to visit no matter your age!! The volunteers are very informative and friendly. The carousel's history and the work to restore it warms the heart. What a beautiful place to visit and enjoy such creativity.

A must do with kids and grandkids, especially when they are visiting kennewick from out of town. The carousel is just the start. The general play area and food trucks are hitting the spot.

The carousel is adorable. Our 15 month old was charmed by the music and ride itself. The staff were sweet as well.
