A great legacy to have this carousel still up and running, for just 5 cents a ride! Our little one is a little too young yet to really appreciate it, but we'll be back!

We are lucky to be local. What can I say that hasn't been said so many times already in these reviews. First things first the carousel is only 5 cents a ride. 2nd it's located in a beautiful area near lake ontario. 3rd a nice sandy beach to walk or relax on. 4th a few shade trees to enjoy. 5th a picnic pavillion (not the cleanest but there) 6th a place to fish away from any swimmers. 6th close to a few restaurants and bars an ice cream shop and a tim hortons. Only big problem is the one coming in now. The city has sold the simplicity to developers and they are going to put a huge condo building right beside the main entrance to lakeside park. I hope this enhances not detracts from the park. Unfortunately I see this as the begging to an end.

Ok so obviously you get the point ;) it is 5 cents! And YES! How do you go wrong??!!! :) You simply cant* IF you go to St.Kitts go to Port Dalhousie and enjoy :) IT is by the water...
I do think the beach tends to stink during the hot long summer.... But usually May June is safe... Enjoy the walk on the peer too :) it is nice, relaxing, likely in this time period you can still see Toronto as well. The carousel is beautifully done and preserved, and has always hired local college and university kids for the summer :) which is nice as well!

I don't care who you are... You need to take a ride on the Lakeside Park Carousel!! Are you tired of the crowds along the walls at the Niagara Falls? This less known spot is a local fave!! You can walk along the pier out into Lake Ontario, picnic on the beach, or climb a tree at Lakeside Park. Everyone can afford the 5c ride. Keep a ticket as a souvineer. There are sleds for the lovers or Grandparents to sit in while riding around and around with their kids or grandkids on both moving or stationary carved wooden animals. There are great photos of the past on display and information about the restoration. The music can be heard outside the pavillion. The organ has been authentically restored and it is wonderful watching the drums beat and cymbals crash. If you need to escape the grind... this is a sure place to unwind so you can reclaim your joy. Make sure you experience this treasure before the multi- million dollar condo project takes over!!
