A must experience when in the Niagara Region. Restored old time carousel with rides still just 5 cents. Steps from the water and picnic area and a play area for the little ones. A family tradition for 3 generations of my local clan.

5 cents will get you a carousel ride to make you feel like a kid again. Great beach view and beach volley courts to people watch.

This restored carnival ride, is a rare experience. The price is still a nickel. Some animals go up and down. Others are stationary. It is a nostalgic ride for all ages.

Beautiful well maintained carousel, that keeps kids and adults happy over the years. Very proud of this old landmark. Will always takes kids and adults for a ride there, and the beach is close by. Wonderful setting for a relaxing day.

Parking is free. Parking lot can fill up fast. Arrive early and you may not have too much trouble. You can park on the back streets of Port and then walk to the beach.
