You can still ride the carousel for five cents, play in the park, jump in the lake or soak up the sun on the beach on Lake Ontario, there is something for everyone here.

Where else can you ride a 100 year old 4-abreast carousel with a refurbished calliope organ for 5 cents a ride? The animals have been lovingly restored by the Friends of the Carousel (a group of wood carvers and others). It is one of the largest remaining Looff carousels with 69 animals. It is a wonderful way to spend the... More

For (five cents) a ride, what a great way to entertain your young Grandchildren. The Carousel entertains young and old alike.

The historical merry-go-round at beautiful Lakeside Park in St. Catharines is a must-stop on any trip to the Niagara Region. Situated between the Port Dalhousie Harbour and Marina and pristine sandy beach on the south shore of Lake Ontario, the carousel has been meticulously restored down to the tiniest detail and features lions, giraffes, unicorns and, of course, majestic mares...

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.

My mother and mother-in-law went on the Lakeside Park Carousel as children. And since, so have myself and my husband, our niece and great niece. Still 5 cents a ride! It's a beautiful carousel. 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.
