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 open daily from Victoria Day weekend until Labour Day weekend. Check website for hours.

Mainly geese on the grass and gulls on the beach. Quiet area. Pretty deserted in mid September. The park is well apportioned.

Such a wonderful experience! Reminiscent of bygone days when things were just a bit slower. Would recommend for children and children at heart.

Out of town guests have enjoyed riding on the carousel. The painted horses are a treasure. The sound is a bit annoying and loud, but still, it is a recommended experience
