This carousel has been around for a long time. It's one attraction that you can count on as far as city kids being able to have a taste of an amusement ride in the middle of concrete sidewalks and streets. I'm glad it's still around.

The Triple Cities of NY...Binghamton, Johnson City, Endicott...has been blessed with the gift from Shoe baron George Johnson of Endicott Johnson Shoes gift of six carousels with the caveat that no one will ever pay for a ride, and that means you. West Endicott Park is probably closest to my home but there are two others in Endicott, one on... More

Fun carousel that is enclosed for weather. Many different horses and animal along with a seat/bench for those who can't climb on the horses. Always free to ride!

This is fun FREE thing to do in the area. Other cities you go to there's usually a fee to ride a carousel. It's also great that it's enclosed! The carousel is in great condition and it's fun to ride a few times on different horses. My son loves it!

It's a tiny park touched away in the heart of downtown little Johnson City. Lots of tables, room to run, plenty of park benches, play grounds offer the sprinkler park, the climbing areas, the FREE carousel and is completely fenced in. Give it a try.

We are carousel enthusiasts and came here specifically to ride the circuit of 6 carousels. These carousels were purchased by George F. Johnson of Endicott-Johnson Shoe Manufacturing and given to the cities in the Binghamton area along with the parks on the condition they remain free for everyone to ride. In developing excellent relations with his workers, Johnson was a... More

Fun ride! Great for kids to learn about the history of the area, and what it was built from. There is a swimming pool and a park area where kids can play. I think this carousel goes faster than others in the area.

I love carousels and this one, as well as the other free carousels in the area, has history. You certainly cannot beat the price. You must take your children and grandchildren to all the carousels.
