The Lupin Foundation Carousel Building, home of the historic, antique carousel featuring 54 hand-carved animals, is the centerpiece of the amusement park. This unique space is a great place to host casual or formal receptions, birthday parties and more.

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.



The Musik Express in the Carousel Garden amusement park is a replica of a ride from the glory days of nearby Pontchartrain Beach.
