My nephew adores this carousel. The animals are handcarved and brightly painted and have a definite local flair as they include flamingos, seahorses, fish, etc among the basic carousel horses. You can buy tokens either right at the ride or in any of the surrounding shops. Adults aren't charged if they are not riding an animal, but just onboard to... More

There is no need to charge so much for a 1 minute ride when there is never a wait and it brings business to the surrounding stores. I like many other moms, would bring my kids here a lot more often if it wasn't so expensive!

Downtown at the Gardens has a beautiful carousel. If you have small children, It is very easy to spend a nice morning (actually any time of the day) riding the carousel and then go have a cup of frozen yogurt at Fro Yotopia.

There is nothing super special about this carousel. It is in the a very nice outdoor mall and gives the kids something to look forward to. If you are dragging them around to shop be sure to reward the kiddo's with a trip to the carousel!

This has been such a nice addition to Downtown at the Gardens. Our grandkids just love it and the art work on it is very unique, there's not another one like it. I'm a born and raised Floridian and truly appreciate the paintings, and the animals that are indigenous to Florida. Even the "big" kids love it and I've ridden... More

My daughter will love the carusel and the train. I found it very clean and Nice. They have a very comprehensive food organic market. People who have dogs, left them moored outside without any problem ocacionen. They have several shops known for me and other who do not, but I love to know.

This carousel is wonderful if you have kids. It is beautifully hand carved and painted as well. The kids just love it and its very reasonably priced. We've visited many times since it opened!

I love this carousel! It's clean, pretty, just the right size, and I love the animals you can choose to ride (mostly Florida wildlife, like a Florida panther, a sea turtle, a flamingo, a manatee, a dolphin, etc.) $2 a ride is a little bit pricey, but at least they keep it clean and running well.

I don't know what else to really say, it is beautiful. It is one of the best carousels I have ever seen especially made for South Florida. Our daughter loves to go on it each time we go to Downtown. She likes to go on the train ride too which is fun if you have little ones.
