Carol Ann's Carousel almost ready to open

All the wooden characters are in place. They bob evenly, up and down, as the carousel spins. It won't be long until children's voices will bounce off the glass walls surrounding Carol Ann's Carousel at Smale Riverfront Park.

Installation is complete and crews are finishing the carousel building and surrounding grounds. A ribbon cutting is set for May 16.

Admission will be $2.00 per ride. Ridership cards, good for 100 rides, will be sold for $150.

Hours will be:

  • Peak Season: Reds Opening Day to Labor Day Tues-Sun - 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.
  • Off Peak Season: Day after Labor Day to New Year's Eve Wed-Sun - 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
  • Winter: January 1 to day before Reds Opening Day Thurs-Sun: 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
