Forest Park Carousel Opens for the Season

After months of cold temperatures, the Forest Park Carousel is now open for the season.

"It's amazing. It's exciting. You know, I'm pretty sure a lot of people have cabin fever and they just want to get out and get rolling," said, Operations Manager Daeshawn Grimes.

Kids and their parents hit the merry go round, the "Woodhaven Express" and more on Saturday.

Workers said that visitors should expect parties at the venue on the Fourth of July, Labor Day and more.

The Carousel will not be open seven days a week until after the Memorial Day Weekend.

Information on the current hours for the carousel is available at
