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)

One of the 6 antique carousels in the carousel circuit. Beautiful antique carousel free to the public. Great fun for everyone.

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.

This merry-go-round is well-kept, free to ride, and in a nice enclosed building with windows that open, offering a nice breeze but also protection for the machine during off-season months. The carousel unfortunately no longer has its band organ, but uses authentic carousel recordings instead. The carousel is part of the "Carousel Circuit" encompassing 6 carousels in the Triple Cities... More

As another reviewer explained, this is one of six working carousels in the region given by George F. Johnson (of Endicott Johnson Shoe fame). He donated all 6 years ago, and specified that no one should ever have to pay to ride them – and so it is today. If you have a 2-4 hours, work your way around and... More
