For 5 cents a ride, this 1900 wood carousel will make a child so happy and you'll likely jump on too. Great playground next to it. You can swim in the lake, but verify the water quality report before doing so. Nice walk on the beach, Port Dalhousie pier and marina. Ice cream shops on site and around the corner. Lots of geese in the fall which always fascinate little ones. Evenings are great for beautiful sunset.

The Carousel is a gem, kept in excellent condition by volunteers and this has been going on for years. The very positive part is: a ride in this attraction is and always has been - a nickel - yes as in 5 cents !!!

HOWEVER: next to this beauty in the park, by the beach of Lake Ontario, across from the city of Toronto, some goofs have had their way to tear down some beautiful old buildings, shops, restaurants etc. so that it is a terrible mess right now. Eventually they plan to build a huge multi story apartment building, totally not fitting in the once serene Port Dalhousie scenery. Shame !!!

It's a beautiful carousel that has been kept in pristine condition. It's great fun for the kids - there is a playground adjacent to the carousel. Great in the summertime for an hour of fun.

Good Old Fashion Carousel. Only 5 cents per ride is a great deal. Great for small kids & Families. Lots of parking nearby. Washrooms are about a 5min walk away. Lake Ontario/Beach about a 5min walk away.

This fully restored carousel is a thing of beauty. And they have retained the originally pricing of 5 cents a ride (though donations are appreciated). Step on the carousel and you step back a hundred years. Amazing!
