When operational, the Playland Pier Merry-Go-Round will be open seasonally approximately May through October, and for special community events throughout the year. 

There will be part time jobs and volunteer positions to run the carousel.

The ride cost will be kept low at $2 per ride, with quantity discounts and party day passes available.

The carousel is expected to be self-sustaining through ridership and community support.

Please keep the foundation in mind in your estate planning.


Ground Breaking:  As fundraising continues and goals are met, ground breaking can begin.  We are hoping for a Spring/Summer 2016 time frame.

Our mission is to build a new home for the original hand carved Playland Pier carousel. The new location will be in front of the historic Memorial Field grandstand.  A perfect location to showcase this rare piece of history and art!  The area will become our community's "Historic Heart".
