The carousel at night and exclusive to wedding guests gave dancers and diners a fun place to take a break. The carousel is beautifully lit and has riding characters appropriate for all ages. Great photo opportunities. The venue has a wall of windows facing the ocean. The wedding party went down to the water at and after sunset for some astounding shots!! Children had not only the carousel, but the ocean and a playground to keep them busy. The only drawbacks are the parking and restrooms. The parking is in a grass field not directly adjacent to the site. The wedding planners had golf carts ferrying guests, but it was a bit of a problem. If the weather had been inclement it would have been very muddy. The restrooms were not in the building, so a bit of a hike. Women in heels and gowns found it difficult. The food was great, but also had a logistical problem since it was fixed off-site. I am hoping being honest about these little hiccoughs does not give you the wrong idea. IT WAS DELIGHTFUL!! One of the most fun weddings we have ever attended (out of probably 25 total)!!

I like to drive through the light display every couple of years. Individual merchants & organizations sponsor each unique display. For $10, each car drives on the paved road around a huge loop by & under lighted holiday displays, and enjoys Christmas music via the accompanying radio station. It is fun to see the creativity & variety of displays, but the experience is a bit underwhelming.

What a treasure in the city of New Haven!!
This historical Carousel is magnificent in all ways--the music and the antique horses that have been beautifully refurbished! What a gem. It's just a shame that the City doesn't put staff on more often to run it, as it is only available for pubic on a limited basis.

A lot of people have commented on the $30 fee for non-resident vehicles entering the park. Personally, I don't think the park is worth $30. However, if you just park half a mile down the road and walk to the park you can walk right in along a path and not pay anything. This is what I do, and it is well worth it. My wife and I do this for picnics at the park.
