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.

It cost 5 cents a ride. It's closed during the winter. Volunteers keep the horses looking like new ones
