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.  The horses are painted in whimsical colors and designs that appeal to children and adults alike.  The carousel runs every 30 minutes when the marina is open.
