This beautiful carousel, completed in 1995, was the brainchild and vision of a local Missoula cabinet-maker, who carved much of the structure himself and also trained an enthusiastic team of volunteers to assist in the project.

Kids and adults love the carousel, and a chance to grab a ring as you go round and round. It's also next to a large playground which kids love.

We travel often through Missoula and always have to stop if the carousel is open. The whole family has a ball in this area with great places to eat and the river nearby. Quite an experience trying to grab the "golden ring" to get the free ride! Plus there is an amazing park connected to the carousel and ample parking.... More

Was very enjoyable experience. We stopped in to see it and ended up riding it. We walked around and saw the park, watched people surf the river.

The Carousel and playground are worth a stop! You can also watch people surf the river nearby at Brennan's Wave. Love the misters in the playground keeping children cool!

A great place to come with kids. You want to try to get an outside horse so you can grab the rings from the dragons mouth and get the golden ring for a free ride. You have to be at the front of the line though because everyone else wants an outside horse too! There is a beautiful playground next-door... More

A great mix of single and double horses. There are also some sitting options as well. They move fast and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable. Consider getting an outside horse. Catch the rings out of the dragons mouth. Get a golden one, you get a free ride!

Visitors and riders of all ages. As many seniors as tots. Nice long ride on beautiful animals--try the green dragon. Very fast moving with big kids trying to grab the plastic rings as they pass by. The climbing area just outside is great for young kids.

The kids loved this ride and we enjoyed the building and beautifully painted carousel. Bonus - it's next to the river.
