Totally enclosed hand carved animals. Beautifully executed and painted. A thill for all ages young and old. Soon a new building to show off the carving and painting of these animals will be constructed.

Our grandbabies always look forward to visiting the Carousel. It costs $1.00 to ride. There's a cute gift shop. You can also visit the workshop where the Carousel horses are made. There's a children's park outside and a nice path to walk along the river.

I took my 4 year old granddaughter along with a 17 year old and both had fun riding the carousel. Lots of variety of characters. They really catered to the kids.
