Lakeside Park Carousel

Lakeside Park classic is like riding a time machine

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.

Parking limited due to dock construction and main lot closed. Can walk in from street to beach. Who knows when it will be open, says Spring the dock work is to be done.
