This Carousel is a must see if in the area! It has been well maintained and is still only 5 cents to ride. There were people there from young toddlers to senior citizens with handfulls of tickets to keep riding over and over

A must visit for anyone with kids, or even kids at heart. Well maintained, clean, close to beach. 5 cents per ride, how can you go wrong?

Lovely walk but not a lot happening. It looks like shops and restaurants are being renovated. Nice marina though

5 cents that's the cost of a ticket to ride on our restored Merry go round in old Port Dalhousie This ride was turned over to the city with the condition that the ride price of 5 cents could never be changed In fact the City Council did try once to change the price using all the old excuses they...

Went with friends and their 8 year old grandson. Our ages ranged from 75 to 8 and we all went on and had a great time. Fare is 5 cents per person although donations are appreciated.

Still 5 cents to ride, this course is steeped in history. Every ride is time well spent in beautiful Port Dalhousie.

WOW! What a gorgeous machine! A hidden jewel of a carousel, with the most incredible mix of horses and menagerie animals I have seen inside or outside of a museum. Lovingly maintained, beautifully preserved, and a joy for adults and children alike. It is difficult for me to get on and off a carousel these days, but I received nothing... More

A great, authentic piece of history from a long time ago. You can't the price and nostalgia. The park and beach is free to get in too.

What a blast from the past. It was so fun riding on the carousel. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and it wasn't busy at all. A great way to kill some time and keep the kids happy.

Reminiscent of olden days, when the carousel was a nickel to ride. They have kept this true to form. Only open in the summer--they have kept the horses and animals as true to the originals as possible. It is an act of love that has been around since the 20's?? Right on Lake Ontario, and Port Dalhousie beach.....it is good... More
