For years the 26-horse antique carousel has been a favorite of area children. Built between 1937 and 1945, the carousel was purchased by the Park Authority in 1978 from Fairhill Farm antiques. The horses are handcarved and constructed out of wood and cast-aluminum. Construction several years ago brought it back in fine shape with a tensile roof structure to protect it from the weather. The horses are removed to storage in the off-season and undergo extensive refurbishing to fill cracks that develop in the wood, then they are sanded and repainted. In the Winter and Spring of 2010, students enrolled in Lake Accotink Park art classes volunteered their time, talents, and creativity to the task of repainting each horse in whimsical colors and designs that appeal to children and adults alike.
