Also, there is no water fountain available at this park, the bathroom is disgustingly dirty with no soap or paper towels, and the garbage cans are overflowing and not regularly emptied. Such a shame, since so many children and families need this park.

This carousel has been around for a long time. It's one attraction that you can count on as far as city kids being able to have a taste of an amusement ride in the middle of concrete sidewalks and streets. I'm glad it's still around.
