We were able to take the kids to the carousel and create some lifelong memories. There are not too many kids in this world these days they get to ride carousels like they did in the old days.

I only recently learned of the existence of the Carousels in the Binghamton area (I'm from PA about 2.5 hours distance away). I was excited to learned that I was going to get to visit some of them the day we visited. We visited the C. Fred Johnson one as well, which was very nice, but I Loved This ONE!
It is so nicely kept up. I love the Wurlitzer Military Band Organ, which I understand was just recently repaired - thank you for repairing not replacing it!!! The ride on this one is really long, which is so nice and of course it's Free!!!!
Afterwards we walked around and looked at all the artwork which is so lovely. I especially enjoyed the Rod Serling panels, so nice to honor him.
Just everything about the visit was lovely and romantic....! Thanks Tom

Without a doubt the best carousel in the Southern Tier. Well maintained and the Wurlitzer Organ that plays during the ride is amazing. Young or old, this is a can't miss attraction!

Stopped here after reading about the carousel on FB. Not the easiest to find if you are not familiar with Binghampton. Enjoyable to ride and 3 16 year olds seemed amused..

Recreation park is like stepping back in time. Picnic tables nestled in pines, with a play ground and ball field, water fountain with a penny pnd to throw your wishes in. What a beautiful setting for a Carousel, fully opporational, beautifully restored ponys, authenic organ music.

We visited in July of 2018. This restored Carousel has been a staple for generations of children in Binghamton. Installed in 1925 and a gift to the City by George F Johnson. It is one of six in our area, more than any City in the world. Rod Serling spent his boyhood here and lived nearby. The grounds include a bandstand, pool, playground, Tennis Courts, and Ball field. Come ride this historic machine next time you visit the City.

Always take our local and out of town grandkids to the Rec Park Carousel, love to see their excitement when they get to pick out their horses. Then stay for another ride or two! Check out the nearby play area as well! Thank you George F Johnson! (Google him!)

Beautiful restored carousel in Recreation Park is still free. Established in 1925, the hand carved horses have been lovingly restored. The sound track you hear is not a sound track, but an actual antique organ dating back to the original installation. You are entering a dimension of sight and sound...
