Love visiting the Lakeside park and the carousel. Always have to go for a ride, either just with my hubby or with family and friends. Love the relaxed atmosphere down by the beach

It costs FIVE CENTS to take a spin around the carousel. It's fantastic for families - little kids. Spend a day at the beach and enjoy a ride or two

I rode this carousel as a kid and now bring my grandchildren. It is a fixture in the community. Where else can you have this much fun for a nickel. I hope it last another 100 years.

This lovely old carousel is maintained by volunteers. They charge only a nickel to ride. Worth seeing, worth doing. Enjoy the fancy painted ladies on the centre of the carousel!
