Thursdays in August, kids twelve and under ride free! The Carousel is a great place for kids - and adults! Take an old-fashioned ride back in time, to the golden age of carnival excitement, right in Brooklyn’s landmark Prospect Park.
Located in the Park’s "Children’s Corner," the Carousel features 51 magnificently carved horses, a lion, a giraffe, a deer, and two dragon-pulled chariots. Carved in 1912 by Charles Carmel, one of the foremost carousel designers of the time, and restored by the Prospect Park Alliance in 1990, the Carousel promises that classic summertime amusement will be available for generations of fun. In addition, the Prospect Park Carousel is one of the few in the world that is wheelchair accessible.
