The Carousel has provided us with many years of precious happy memories, all for the cost of 5 cents per ride. This Carousel is an absolute treasure for the Niagara community and visitors near and far.

This is one of the coolest historical places I've come across. They restored this carousel to its orginal design. To keep it orginal they still charge 5 cents to ride it. Its a cheap ride on history.

Nothing can best this simple yet fun experience. A nickel a ride still after all these years and it's such a great family attraction. Nice to see the enhancements across the entire park.

Lovely to see this magnificent carousel still operating & bringing joy to so many people young & old. Its probably the oldies who will fondly remember such carousels from their chilhood. A real nostalgia ride.

The carousel is still 5 cents! Are you kidding me?!? The kids loved it. The play park is a very good and different one and the beach here would have been nice except for the pollution and no swimming signs. We'll definitely be back!

LOVE the carousel - our most recent trip was with cousins from out-of-town. We are all 50 & better. Had the time of our life. This is a 'must do' for any age group.
