This is a really great place to take the kids. They will love it. Nice carousel and a great place for people watching while the kids ride the ride.

While I did not ride the carousel I watched the children squealing with laughter riding and having fun. There is along a short train ride the children can take which also seemed liked the children were enjoying themselves. I enjoyed seeing children so happy.

He carosel in Downton at the Gardens has brought life to a once slow area. Our granddaughters never miss a chance to enjoy a ride or two. I often join them.

I always take my grand kids on this ride. You can get change in Fruitopia next door. This is a smaller Carousel which is perfect for my 4 1/2 year olds. Nice to watch while eating a Yogurt ice cream.

I haven't actually been on the Carousel or ridden on the train, but they look like a lot of fun for the kids while accompanying adults who are shopping. Especially for couples with children, it looks like a great solution to give mom or dad a chance to shop in peace while the other parent stays with the kids. Looks... More

Great "new" old-fashioned Carousel. Big enough for kids of all sizes (and ages). Beautiful murals (local & state subjects). Beautiful and "different" animals/mammals for rides (as well as bench seats). The Carousel is located in the middle of the "courtyard" of the business around it. Takes a minute to find it - absolutely worth it! Go have fun!

This is a lovely carousel! If you need to keep the kids happy while waiting for a shopper this is great! There are many different types of animals and sea creatures to ride on. Ours choose a different one every time! There is also a small child's train that runs in the same area. Also close to Cool Beans and... More

This is just a really cool thing to see - and ride on. The animals are beautifully painted, the carousel is clean and well-maintained and the variety of local critters is so much fun. Sea horses, a panther, manatees, and a spoonbill. This is definitely worth a stop.

Thank CJGinFL
