Great for kids

Couldn't believe they still charge 5 cents per ride. The carousel is well maintained and service staff are well trained.

I have been going to this carousel since I was a toddler, have brought my nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews....all that time and still only five cents a ride. Bring a picnic enjoy the ride and the beautiful view.

Lovely view of the beach while riding on a stationary animal or horse that goes up and down while music plays in the background. It is still only 5 cents a ride. Nice, romantic and fun for couples - or a real hoot for children. My niece had to come to visit the carousel every single year she loved it... More

How can you go wrong with five cent carousel rides. Kids love it! Beach, playground, carousel, ice cream.

This is a historic carousel that is fun for the entire family. We love that it's still only 5 cents to ride. We love spending summer nights at port and we top it off with a few rides. It's still in great shape and it's such a beautiful work of art. It's a part of our heritage and gives countless... More

Kids love it and so do adults. Something you don't see in every town or city .... A must visit ... No waits and a great way to spend time with the family.

Such a treat to see the Smiles on the faces. It's still 5 cents... The wooden horses are kept up beautifully, bright coloured paint. Close to the beach, for a walk.

Just a Super place to take the children! Still 5 cents a ride! Spend the day on the beach. Volleyball courts, concession stand and two really awesome ice cream shops nearby!

I grew up with the carousel and now every visitor we have must go on it. Can't imagine a trip to St. Catharines without a stop at Lakeside Park and at least one carousel ride. At a nickel a ride it is something all families can afford . It's the best use of tax dollars in St. Catharines to be... More
