“Really gotta see this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

Stopped for lunch in Shelby. Found the carousel on Trip Advisor and surprised my bride with a trip to City Park to see It. (BTW, when you go the map link from TA you will be miles away from where City Park actually is. You will find it adjacent to the library.) It is worth Looking for. They have done a terrific job of restoration. Unfortunately, it wasn't operating when we were there ( they run it twice a day) but we were able to get a good look at it. You will it inside a pavilion next to the playground behind the city pool.

“Beautiful Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We recently visited Shelby Park for an event that was taking place there. We had heard good things about the park, and they were true! It is a beautiful place and we are looking forward to getting back to see more of the walking paths and take part in other things happening at the park!

“The carrosel and minature train are something”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

The restored carrosel and minature train are fantastic things to let your grandchildren or children ride on.. The rides are only $.50 per time and there is an adjacent free playground for them to play in as well.

“See the park!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Beautiful, well-maintained park, but the lovingly restored carousel is the highlight that makes it worth the trip.
