About This Item

Port Dalhousie Carousel -The smiles and laughter which the carousel inspire. is a century old tradition! Today, the Lakeside Park Carousel stands proudly representing the heritage and lifestyles of years gone by. For 5 cents a ride, you can experience the carousel´s magic and its wonderful ability to bring out the child in all of us. The Lakeside Park Carousel is a timeless tradition connecting our past, present, and future generations.

The Lakeside Park Carousel in Port Dalhousie is a Charles Looff original, carved between 1898 and 1905 in Brooklyn, New York. The carousel came to St. Catharines in 1921, from its earlier home in Hanlan´s Point, Scarborough Beach in Toronto. It was purchased to be a part of the amusement park flourishing in Port Dalhousie, and was one of 58 attractions in the park. In those days, more than a quarter million people crossed the lakes in steamships to visit Port Dalhousie on weekends. The Lakeside Park Carousel has 68 animals, in 4 rows. Each animal has been hand-carved, and most still sport real horse hair tails. The Carousel in Lakeside Park is a fairly large carousel. Many Carousels have an outside range of 18 animals in 2 rows, with the largest Carousel containing 269 animals!
