Artist's Description

a giraffe on the Lakeside Park Carousel in Port Dalhousie, Ontario, Canada.

History of the Carousel from the City of St. Catharines Website.


The Lakeside Park Carousel in Port Dalhousie is a Charles Looff original, carved between 1898 and 1905 in Brooklyn, New York. The carousel came to St. Catharines in 1921, from its earlier home in Hanlan´s Point, Scarborough Beach in Toronto. It was purchased to be a part of the amusement park flourishing in Port Dalhousie, and was one of 58 attractions in the park. In those days, more than a quarter million people crossed the lakes in steamships to visit Port Dalhousie on weekends. The Lakeside Park Carousel has 68 animals, in 4 rows. Each animal has been hand-carved, and most still sport real horse hair tails. The Carousel in Lakeside Park is a fairly large carousel. Many Carousels have an outside range of 18 animals in 2 rows, with the largest Carousel containing 269 animals! Donations are welcomed at the Carousel, and are used to help maintain our treasure! For further information regarding the Carousel please, call our Recreation Supervisor at 905-688-5601 extension 1570, or on weekends and evenings during hours of operation, the Carousel Staff at
905-934-1221. May you go round and round and round a thousand sunny summertimes!
