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.

Ross Park is one of the 6 carousels in the Carousel Circuit. It is beautiful. It is free to ride the carousel.

Old time carousel. Boys rode it four times when we arrived and two more times before we left. Enough said

Its not some crappy little carousel with outdated machinery and broken down horses, its well taken care of, and its free! You dont have to pay admission to the zoo to ride the carousel! Its a very good size, and again its free! you cant get any better than that!
