Get ready for a summer of fun with the Stewart Park carousel!
The carousel at Stewart Park is almost ready for use! The carousel, which is dismantled every spring, began its reassembly last week and yesterday the horses were added to the ride. Built in 1951 the carousel has been in need of many repairs in recent years, including the addition of a custom electrical connector to help with the lighting. Jeanne Grace, the forester for Ithaca, has also submitted proposals concerning a pavilion that would protect the ride from weather damage.
