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 open daily from Victoria Day weekend until Labour Day weekend. Check website for hours.
If you are driving through stop here and ride the carousel. You do have to pay to park. We had lunch here at the park then rode the carousel.
We enjoy going to the beach in Port Dalhousie and we love watching the kids enjoy this beautiful Carousel. It's worth bringing the kids to the beach to get some ice cream.
Mainly geese on the grass and gulls on the beach. Quiet area. Pretty deserted in mid September. The park is well apportioned.
