We are members of the National Carousel Association and we came here to ride the carousel. What a marvelous experience! Tickets are only 50 cents apiece. John Howe, the man who we bought tickets from, is very knowledgeable of carousels and this one in particular. This carousel was made in 1893 by Charles Looff. The animals were carved exquisitely – look at the different works of art behind the cantles (back of each saddle). The animals weren’t converted to jumping positions; the carousel spins really fast to make up for that. There’s even a picture of Charles Looff himself painted onto one of the upper panels. This carousel is truly worth experiencing.

I take my grandson here regularly to look at the ducks and walk around the park. He loves it. The playground can be busy in warmer months so best to go early or later in the day. The ice cream stand has reasonable prices and makes for a nice break from exploring. The BV bike path does run through the park so for those interested it’s a great place to park for free and start your trek north or south. There are picnic areas that can be rented via the park office. This park has great potential if invested in.
