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.

Great little activity in the heart of downtown. As the father of a three year old, I've become quite the carousel connoisseur. This carousel has it all. Rings to grab for prizes, garage doors that open on nice days, friendly staff, and speedier than most...More

Nice little carousel and community project. Mechanical workings are from old carousels, but the horses were all carved by volunteers. Right next to riverside walking trail and downtown.

Children of all ages love to ride. Everyone has a story about a marry-go-round, but this is a genuine hand carved piece of history that you'll be riding, brass ring and all.

We were the only ones there at 7:30pm on a Sunday night. The ring game that is a part of the carousel was great because we both kept winning (no competition ha!). Every time you make a loop there is a dragons head that you...More
