Celebrating the Carousel

The C.W. Parker Carousel is celebrating a century of service this year.

To celebrate, artist José Rivas has been commissioned to create original paintings of three horses to be featured as a "horse of the month" from June through August. Each month, posters featuring one of the horses will be given away to the first 5,000 riders.

Horse #11, Vivian has been selected as the first "horse of the month."

More About Vivian

Interpretive panels about the carousel's history have been installed at the carousel building, and visitors can also learn more about the individual horses using two new touch-screen computers.

Gate Admission is FREE, Carousel Rides are $2.30 each.
