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 !

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

Nice to ride an old carousel. The fact that it is free is great. The horses were mostly in very good condition

If you're looking for a classic old-school carousel, you've come to the right place. Located at the entrance to the Ross Park Zoo, this vintage ride will be sure to please any carousel aficionado. There's nothing particularly unique or trendy here, but that is part of the charm of this wonderful "merry go round". Highly recommended.
