Great spot for families. Every year when my nieces and nephews come, this is the first thing they ask about. Loved by the whole family

Every year, when we're visiting family in North Bay, we take our five kids to the train and carousels. The carousels are gorgeous, quirky, and beautifully restored. The volunteers running the two carousels and the miniature train are generous and kind.

Some fun for the kids at North Bay's water front. Just across the street is a brand new, large scale playground as well as a long sandy beach. The train and 2 carousels offer some excitement for younger kids. As a family, we go a few times each summer at the request of our children so we know they much... More

It was fun for the kids and the guys running it were retired guys who just wanted to share the stories and experiences with all the visitors.

I painted some of the scenery panels as well as two of the horses and one of the animals for the smaller "northern" carousel, so I know how many man hours went into the creation of the two carousels. Friendly volunteers put in many hours manning the two carousels and the train. They are great value at only $2.00 per... More

Both the North Bay Heritage Train and the Carousel are wonderful rides for children. There is plenty of parking and the volunteer staff are very friendly and safety conscious. The Carousel is a community heritage and has a history that is so local and community-minded. The train is a delight for younger children as is the Carousel. There is also... More

Having volunteered for the Heritage Train and Carousel... the adults of any age enjoy it as much as the children do. BRINGS back the child in us.
