“The children’s laughter and old Calliope music are part of the charm and tradition of the carousel and the summers in Oakland,” said Shawn Fertitta, director of visitor experience for the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. “We couldn’t be happier with the carousel’s safe reopening, upgrades, and excitement it creates for the families who enjoy it every year.”
The carousel is open every week from Wednesday to Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The cost per trip is $ 2. Tokens can be bought with a credit card at the kiosk in the carousel or with cash in the Asia Tea House.
