I take my granddaughter here to ride the carousel and she just loves it. The animals have been beautifully restored. One of the volunteers chatted with us about the history of the rides and it was so cool listening to him. They also have a snack bar, we haven't bought anything there so I can't rate it.

Took my granddaughter who is old enough to reach for the brass ring. Was part of a parth package which was expensive in my opinon and so is riding the carousel, but worth at least a visit to see the beautiful restoration.

Our grandkids loved it. There is a park next to the carousel that has a play area and a small water park. Really fun place for kids.

This carousel was created in the 1920’s and has been fully refurbished, complete with two newly created pieces representing Washington State University and the University of Washington. They offer many special events, so you always have something new to see and so above and beyond riding the ponies.

This is a place to visit no matter your age!! The volunteers are very informative and friendly. The carousel's history and the work to restore it warms the heart. What a beautiful place to visit and enjoy such creativity.
