This is fun FREE thing to do in the area. Other cities you go to there's usually a fee to ride a carousel. It's also great that it's enclosed! The carousel is in great condition and it's fun to ride a few times on different horses. My son loves it!

It's a tiny park touched away in the heart of downtown little Johnson City. Lots of tables, room to run, plenty of park benches, play grounds offer the sprinkler park, the climbing areas, the FREE carousel and is completely fenced in. Give it a try.

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

Fun ride! Great for kids to learn about the history of the area, and what it was built from. There is a swimming pool and a park area where kids can play. I think this carousel goes faster than others in the area.

I love carousels and this one, as well as the other free carousels in the area, has history. You certainly cannot beat the price. You must take your children and grandchildren to all the carousels.

Wonderful free carousel that you can get on and off as many times as you like. A nice pool for young kids with a playground and covered area for lunch. Not fancy but you can't beat the carousel ( or any of the other free ones in the Tri cites area)

We have 7 nice carousels in our county. They are all free! The Johonson's family, from Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company, wanted them to always remain free so no child would be denied a ride. When one of the Johnson's sons was small, he couldn't ride on a carousel because they could not afford it.

Free carousel rides on handcarved horses, what could be better? There was a delightful mix of kids and grownups from the neighborhood, the horses are respectfully repainted, there's a view of adjoining playgrounds and pool.
