“Fun for the kids.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Cheap fun. Right by the river to take a walk before or after. Or have a picnic at the park right outside.

“gift shop”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

gift shop is very expensive and you think they would have more of a treat selection like cotton candy or pop corn things that would make it more enjoyable for the little ones

“Fun time!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The Carousel is a fun, old time entertainment. We buy the punch card, so each ride is barely over a dollar and very handy when we have time to stop in for a quick go-around. Very fun for both kids and the adults riders.

“River front”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We came to the riverfront for a family day carnival they were having. It was a lot of fun and many booths. The carousel was a bit of a wait, but it was fun for my 5 yr old.

“Amazing Gem in Lovely Waterfront Park”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The Riverfront Carousel is a wonderful place for families to inexpensively entertain their children. The carousel boasts the vintage charm of carnivals long ago while continuing to add new characters,most recently a turtle, for children to ride. The venue also has clean restrooms, snacks, and a fabulous gift shop. There is also a studio where new carousel horses are being created. Children can peek through the windows to see the carved productions being created.

Surrounding the carousel there are playgrounds for toddlers and older children, green space for pick nicking, a wonderful path to walk along the river, and downtown restaurants and cafés.
