COVID-19 Update: The Prospect Park Carousel is open with COVID-19 protocols in place, including social distancing, enhanced cleaning and reduced capacity on the ride. Tickets are first come, first served.
Located in Prospect Park’s Children’s Corner, the Carousel is one of the park’s most popular attractions. Its 53 magnificent horses ride alongside a lion, a giraffe, a deer and two dragon-pulled chariots. Carved in 1912 by Charles Carmel, one of the foremost carousel designers of his time, the Carousel was restored by the Prospect Park Alliance in 1990, with subsequent improvements in 2020 through funding from the New York City Council. It is one of the only wheelchair accessible carousels in the nation. It remains a popular destination for birthday parties and other special events.
