Riding this hundred-year-old carousel really takes you back, and will bring out the child in anyone. The carousel’s own history goes back to turn-of-the-last-century Brooklyn, New York before making its way to St. Catharines in 1921.
The beautifully restored horses, lions, camels, and goats – 68 in all – were all carved by hand. And how charming is it that it still only costs a nickel per ride?
The carousel is now open daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. until Labour Day.
When we moved to St. Catharines, bwing near Port Dalhousie was a MUST so we could make frequent trips to the carousel! Such a timeless attraction, it never gets old!

A wonderful piece of history for all to enjoy! Takes you back to when you were young! And a beautiful setting right by the beach!
The carousel is awesome, such a cool landmark. It’s also got a great park attached, and the beach is a nice spot to hang out and have a picnic.
