Yippee-Yi-Yo!

Renovations on the Krape Park Carousel are now complete.  It’s open weekends from 11:00 am – 8:00 pm and weekdays from noon- 8:00 pm.  Cost per ride remains 50 cents!

Last Fall, the entire carousel was moved from its site. While disassembled, the structure, ticket booth, and horses were refurbished keeping the spirit of the 1995 renovation intact. Site work included a new plaza to support the Carousel structure featuring wide walkways, iron fencing and limestone pillars.

According to Ron Schneider, Superintendent of Recreation, “The Carousel has been a community treasure and focal point in Krape Park since its installment in 1959.  Nearly sixty years later, we made improvements from the ground up to ensure its legacy and enjoyment for generations to come.”
