A wonderful place to take the kids. Great areas for picnics, a beach , volleyball nets, light house and of course 5 cent rides on the carousel. This review is based on past trips, the park MAy 2017 is flooded. First time I have ever seen it flooded in over 40 years, so it is not the norm.

This historic site has not to be missed in the quaint town of Port Dalhousie situated on the banks of Lake Ontario. Children and adults alike flock to experience this carousel ride. Its 5 cents per ride. Do not miss it!

If you're going to be in the NiAgara Region you MUST visit Lakeside park and the carousel. This carousel used to be a part of an old carnival the city could no longer sustain...the carousel itself was gifted to the city with a grant stipulating that it would always be five cents a ride. Donations are also accepted, but otherwise... More

As well as the great carousel ride for 5 cents it is great for bird,dog and people watching...even my pooch will attest to that.The beach is great for summer fun and they are building a new picnic pavilion for those great family gatherings.This is why you will see me there almost everyday.

Brought my young daughter to ride on the carousel and she loved it. Can't beat 5 cents a ride!!! In the summer there can be a bit of a line up but it goes pretty fast.
