What a beautiful,wonderful place to take the kids. My parents took us as kids and now I can take my child. It's affordable and fun. .5cents a ride. Who can beat that. The carousel and park/beach are very clean and well kept. We all old...More

Beautiful. Not the high octane thrill of a roller coaster or a drop zone but a reminder of kinder, gentler times, of childhood innocence, excitement and laughter. We stood and watched adults and kids enjoying themselves. It lifts the spirit.

Whether you are 10, or 45. You will love the carosel. Everyone is always excited around it. And always the same great price. It is a shame they were not able to open up this year due to the rising water.

Unfortunately the carousel was closed for Maintenance. Was there last year and it was great. The playground is great as well.

His old scholarship carousel is just wonderful. If you want to be a kid again, do yourself a favour and go for a ride. We have been a few times now. It's just fun.

The feeling you get from seeing the carousel in action is wonderful . Only .05 per ride 20 rides for a $1.00 I could stay all day. Perfect memory from a childhood long forgotten

Hats off to the volunteers that keep this carousel in its beautiful condition. A great ride for the young and the young at heart. These carousels are disappearing( Toronto is selling theirs)

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.
