Carousel Central


Our Classic American Carousel

Chariots, a spinning teacup, and 14 prancing steeds await the imagination of children, as well as adults. Our classic carousel – the centerpiece of Clemyjontri Park — is lowered to ground level so that it is accessible for wheelchairs, allowing children to transfer to the tea cup. The chariot is designed to allow for transfer to a seated position or to remain seated in the wheelchair.

It’s an experience everyone should have at least once!
