What a treasure in the city of New Haven!! This historical Carousel is magnificent in all ways--the music and the antique horses that have been beautifully refurbished! What a gem. It's just a shame that the City doesn't put staff on more often to run...More

A lot of people have commented on the $30 fee for non-resident vehicles entering the park. Personally, I don't think the park is worth $30. However, if you just park half a mile down the road and walk to the park you can walk right...More

We love fine old wooden carousels and this one is a beauty. It's quite large with 4-abreast well maintained Charles Carmel wooden horses and a fine band organ. The horses have real horse hair tails but unfortunately, a few of the horses were sadly lacking...More

Stopped to see the light house. People working the gate didn't know what they wanted to charge us. They agreed they should charge $75.00. What a rip off. The web says $30.00 for a day pass because we were non-resident. I asked to see the...More
