Great price and length of ride is perfect. Parking is close and the adjacent playground is awesome for running, swinging, climbing, jumping. Horses were clean and colored beautifully. So fun! We will make this a St Augustine tradition when visiting.

A quaint city park with a charming 1927 carousel is a great place for visitors to start or conclude their day of sightseeing. Only a $1 per person for a fun excursion on a historic carousel. Relive your inner childhood!

Davenport Park offers a historic carousel and a nice grassy area - perfect for kids to take a break. Easy parking on the south edge of the park. I couldn't spot any bathrooms in the park.
