“Antique Carousel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This amazing carousel is maintained by volunteers ( Friends of the Lakeside Park Carousel)
As an associated member I can tell you first hand its a wonderful experience to our past and to the delight of children / parents today.
This .5 cent ride still to this day (donations excepted) just proves what volunteers can do to keep dreams alive .

A must see for all ages .

“Amazing ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Seriously what else can you do for 5 cents. That's right I said 5 cents. Every animal on the carousel is hand painted the ride is at least 5 minutes long. There is so much history here. You can purchase a booklet all about the carousel and its history. It is a great place to take the kids or go as adults and relive your childhood. Lots if free parking.

“Almost priceless !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

A classic, beautifully restored, carousel ride For 5 cents? When visiting wine country,Niagara Falls or Niagara on the Lake Ontario enjoy a short trip down memory lane to Port Dalhousie where volunteers lovingly maintain the carousel for all to enjoy.Close to beach,restrooms,picnic tables.Shortwalk to restaurants and a few shops..

A full carousel ride on wonderfully maintained wooden horses - priceless! Still the best bang for only a nickel a ride.
