This place is magical for the hi days. The Christmas music plays and the lights on the trees flash with the music. Carousel ride is a hit with the kids and they also have a mini train ride that goes alone the stores in the downtown area. Pretty views and puts you in the spirit

Always pass by the carousel when I go to the movies. Lots of kids going on it. Across from the carousel is a yogurt store. Plenty of open area for your children to run around.

What can I say? As soon as my grandkids arrive this is their desired destination. And why not? It's beautiful, doesn't go too fast, there's also a train and the best frozen yogurt shop in close proximity.

Besides the fun that a carroussel provides, it is worth knowing how it was made. All in wood, representing Floridas animals... Not to be missed

Carousel great for families with young kids. Our daughter loves to go to downtown at the gardens for both the carousel and the kid friendly outdoor areas. Right next to cool beans, an indoor kids play park and great kid friendly restaurants. Perfect to entertain young kids on a nice day.

My toddlers loved this carousel, which is in excellent condition and clean. There are lots of neat animals to ride on (not just horses), and there are two spinning teacups as well.

My grandaughter who is two loves this Carousel. As soon as we valet the car she is already asking to go ride the carousel and the little train. What more can I say!

We visit the carousel often. There are only 2 wooden carsousels in the country like this. It is so beautiful and fun to ride. Not the typical "horses" but animals that are native to the area. You can choose a horse, seahorse, alligator or bird. There are also 2 teacups for spinning. Every once in awhile, they offer free carousel... More

Who doesn't love a carousel? If you remotely have a thing for riding hand-carved horses and fantasy creatures in circles you must visit and go for a spin!
