I am a local but can vouch for the fact everyone loves the Carousel. No one is too old to enjoy a 5 cent ride down memory lane. Well maintained and lovely beach and shops short steps away.

5 cent rides is what the deceased owner of the said Carousel agreed to when he sold it to the City of St. Catharines. Or so the fable is told. Good way to kill some time while visiting Port Dalhousie.
