Carol Ann’s Carousel is closed until further notice. This is an unfortunate necessity as the City responds to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please revisit our website for COVID-19 Park Updates and check in with our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for day to day information.
Come and take a ride on one of 44 whimsical Cincinnati-centric characters that make up Carol Ann’s Carousel. The carousel is an amazing work of art featuring original artwork by Jonathan Queen with panels depicting animal characters playing in one of the numerous Cincinnati parks. Additional panels celebrate the many historic landmarks of Cincinnati. The carousel is housed inside a glass building so it can operate year-round.
The carousel —a gift from the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile Foundation/US Bank was built by Carousel Works in Mansfield, Ohio, the world’s largest manufacturer of hand-carved wooden carousels.
The Carousel is located at 8 East Mehring Way, just across the street from the new P&G GoVibrant Playscape next to the Roebling Bridge and immediately west of the Pichler Fountain off of Rosa Parks Drive.
