Carousel Birthday Parties

Located in the Park’s Children’s Corner, the historic Carousel has been a popular Brooklyn birthday party venue for decades. Its 53 magnificent horses ride alongside a lion, a giraffe, a deer and two dragon-pulled chariots. It was carved in 1912 by Charles Carmel, one of the foremost carousel designers of his time. Carousel birthday parties and special events offer plenty of amusement for children of all ages.

Party Details:

  • Unlimited rides on the Prospect Park Carousel
  • Two-hour time slot, including setup and cleanup.
  • Two 6-foot tables, ten chairs, two child-sized tables and twelve child-sized chairs in a dedicated space under the awning.
  • Guests are welcome to supply their own food, and are encouraged to bring a cake and candles. Snacks and drinks are also available for sale at the concession stand.

The Carousel is wheelchair accessible and sensory friendly.
