Takes you back

If you want to relive your youth this is the place. All aged kids love the carousel. Even the old people... I meant me too!

Beautiful old carousel, rode it when I was young and now friends with grandkids can ride it free. It's a long walk to get the lids to and it's down in a valley.

A real throwback experience. Leave your pride in the car and enjoy looking at the various horses as well as riding up-and-down-and-around. Length of ride is just long enough, and your co-riders can range from little kids to wedding parties to foreigners to otherwise-jaded teens to seniors.

This carousel is an old fashioned down to earth carousel. It used to be all you needed was a piece of trash to pay for your ride. Now, they just let you ride for free. I still put a piece of trash in the can..... a childhood memory.

As a visitor to the area, we had a great time riding this carousel. The music is great and the best part is that is it FREE!

We are carousel enthusiasts and came here specifically to ride the circuit of 6 carousels. These carousels were purchased by George F. Johnson of Endicott-Johnson Shoe Manufacturing and given to the cities in the Binghamton area along with the parks on the condition they remain free for everyone to ride. In developing excellent relations with his workers, Johnson was a... More

Such a great place..... you pick up a piece for litter for admission. Needless to say, it's very clean and a nice way to pay respect to the environment, and also help the great work they are doing at the Ross park zoo. Thank you !

This is a fun ride, especially if you are already visiting the Ross park zoo. Be sure to collect your riding pass, after visiting and collecting from all of them you can redeem it for a souvenir!

There are 6 Hershell carousels in the Greater Binghamton area. You can ride the carousel at Recreation Park and the other 5 for free. If you ride all 6, you get a pin that is a cool souvenir of your visit. 3 adults in our family ages 48 to 70 enjoyed our tour of the area and rode all 6... More
