It's not as grand as the Children's Creativity Carousel or San Francisco Carousel at Pier 39 of California. It's a very beautiful and magical place for kids and all young at heart.

We love the carousel, and go often. They let parents of little ones ride for free. Perfect place to take out of town company when it's rainy out.

This is a great place to spend an afternoon. The waterfront is beautiful, the carousel is Grand, and talking to the artisans and volunteers was delightful! I enjoy going there to people watch too - all generations have a great time here.

We were on our way up to Portland and stopped off here to stretch our legs before dinner. We didn't have time to ride the carousel but we loved the walk around the park and gift shop. They were also selling popcorn, snow cones, and cotton candy. A great place for a stroll or picnic.
