Fun carousel that is enclosed for weather. Many different horses and animal along with a seat/bench for those who can't climb on the horses. Always free to ride!

This is fun FREE thing to do in the area. Other cities you go to there's usually a fee to ride a carousel. It's also great that it's enclosed! The carousel is in great condition and it's fun to ride a few times on different horses. My son loves it!

It's a tiny park touched away in the heart of downtown little Johnson City. Lots of tables, room to run, plenty of park benches, play grounds offer the sprinkler park, the climbing areas, the FREE carousel and is completely fenced in. Give it a try.

We are carousel enthusiasts and came here specifically to ride the circuit of 6 carousels. These carousels were purchased by George F.

Fun ride! Great for kids to learn about the history of the area, and what it was built from. There is a swimming pool and a park area where kids can play. I think this carousel goes faster than others in the area.

I love carousels and this one, as well as the other free carousels in the area, has history. You certainly cannot beat the price. You must take your children and grandchildren to all the carousels.

Wonderful free carousel that you can get on and off as many times as you like. A nice pool for young kids with a playground and covered area for lunch. Not fancy but you can't beat the carousel ( or any of the other free ones in the Tri cites area)
