It's a carousel. You get on and it goes around, surprisingly fast. There are seats as well as animals, so people with babies can ride. There's also a tiny snack bar.

We drove out of our way to try to find the carousel but we only found signs of the park and no carousel I'm sure it was over there somewhere but there wasn't much direction to it or advertising for it

Yes it is nice to see a completed carousel........it does look nice......but the building that houses the carousel needs some work also. Not being able to ride the carousel due to mechanical failure......we were allow to walk around and see the horses.

Disappointed it was closed. The park appears to be a good place for families with playgrounds, ball parks and plenty of places to let the kids run around and play.

During the school year I think it's only open on the weekends. And then only during daytime hours.
