Visited with the National Carousel Association Convention 9/12/18. Magnificent art work and sculpting created by Jeff Briggs. Truly a destination spot for all ages. The detail on the figures and the colors are amazing.

A wonderful non-traditional carousel. So many animals to choose from and our daughter loved picking out which one to ride. Funky music played. And nice that adults get to ride free when they need to assist a child.

Was strolling past in early morning and there was this wonderful treasure of a carousel. Not like the ones with the tired old horsies, this was alive with all manner of land and sea creatures. Hawk, fish, butterflies, and more. Very well done, very bright...More

Cute place for young kids to visit. 3 dollars each for a ride. The ride is very short though leaving the kiddies wanting more. They do allow adults on to ride. Great places to walk around after.

We hardly ever have to wait in line. Such a good deal right in the heart of Boston. Beautiful sculptural animals that my kids look to try out every time we're in the city.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
