So many great memories here. You can make such a fantastic day out of visiting this carousel - it is very inexpensive, and afterwards your children can have a beachside lunch and then play at the park. For only 5 cents, you can't beat it. The ride is long enough and the music and all the different animals to ride... More

We bring everyone here! It started when our daughter moved here and then when we moved here. We bring everyone to the 5 cent carousel and tell everyone if they come to our area and we are not here to go there. We walk the boardwalk and go to the carousel. No one can feel old here.

I love this historical carousel that I have been coming to since a child. With the enjoyment of the sun and beach at Lakeside Park I always make sure I get to the carousel for a ride or two.

We love visiting this carousel! We buy a strip of tickets and ride it with our oldest who never tires of it. We're grateful that it's been maintained all of these years! There's lots of walking and picnic areas around so bring a lunch and enjoy the scenery.

I'm not kidding. A fully restored carousel from way back. What does it cost to ride? Still a nickel. It is also covered in case it rains. Too bad there aren't a lot more bargains in this world like this

Part of the experience is waiting your turn and choosing which horse you want to ride. Each animal is unique with many horses or African animals to choose from. Great setting on a fresh water beach (Lake Ontario). Went this year with about 24 adults over 50! Great value as we all rode for $1.20 total. Fun for all ages... More

Took our two grandsons, aged 4 and 6 to the carousel this summer. They had the time of their lives. They rode three times. Great fun for a small price

A classic turn of the century fully restored merry go round. Located in a park along the shore of Lake Ontaio and lakeside beach. Best of all it is only a nickel yes 5 cents to ride, the best deal in town and fun for all ages!

The carousel takes you back to a time when you were a child. Everyone is allowed to ride and the cost is only 5 cents while you are in the park check out the other things offered such as dining or shopping or just relaxing on the beach
