Port Dalhousie carousel

This is a must do when in the Niagara Region. Great history and the price is right at only .05 per ride!

An incredible fun thing for all ages at 5 cents. Not the price but the experience that is memorable. The adjacent beach is good, walking along the marina is nice & nearby ice cream shop is a treat. I am local and do not tire of the experience.

I have a picture from a year ago with my then 96 year old father-in-law and our then 4 year old great niece both riding the... More

This is a lovingly restored old carousel that provides a great deal of pleasure to children and adults. It is wel-priced to allow even the most meager budget.

Great history about the carousel and rides are a nickel! Plenty of families enjoying the park, beach and playground. Very nice stop in Saint Catherine's, Ontario, CA!

We read about the carousel online and found out it is a local attraction. The locals told us the story behind it... The original owner of the carousel wanted to donate it to the town, but had one request... that they never raise the price! It has been 5 cents to ride ever since! It looks wonderful and so well...

Located just west of the main parking lot in Port Dalhousie, you’ll probably hear the music before you see it. Very pleasant surroundings with plenty of shade and seating. There is a nice play area after the kids have had enough of the merry-go-round. You would think that with a token price of only five cents you would get a... More

Always as a child we went to the carousel and we could ride a few times because it only cost a nickel....amazing the price is still the same! The carousel creates special memories with old and young alike. Situated on Lake Ontario beautiful spot for a picnic,walk and beautiful sunset.

The carousel at Lakeside park is a real piece of history in action. This has to be the best attraction in the city! The kids love to ride the animals up and down or sit in the sleighs. With the cost at only $.05 per ride you can afford to let them ride as often as they want. Just look... More

They have done an incredible job maintaining this classis Carousel. It's great for kids and still only a nickel for a ride.
