Over the Memorial Day weekend the Krape Park Carousel will be open Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 am – 8:00 pm and noon- 8:00 pm on Monday. Cost per ride is 50 cents.
Park patrons will enjoy the improvements made to the Krape Park Carousel. 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.”
