A note about our historic Carousel ride: The iconic historic Wooden Carousel is currently under repair. While the wooden horses and carousel have been restored, infustructual repairs are being made to the building and surrounding deck. The anticipated timeline on reopening of the Carousel is fall of 2021. Visitors should watch for announcements of its reopening on the City Park website and social media pages. For more than 100 years, visitors have enjoyed this unique marvel – a beauty featuring “flying horses” and one of only 100 such carousels in the country. The Carousel is the masterwork of famed carvers Loof and Carmel, and has drawn praise from the National Historic Preservation Society. The Carousel is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
