The carousel was created by the Dentzel Company of Philadelphia in the 1920s; installed in 1929 at the Forest Park Highlands. In 1987, it was restored to its original beauty and installed in a climate-controlled building in Faust Park. The gift shop carries unique carousel related items, T-shirts, books, water globes, music boxes, postcards, balloons, children’s toys, and goodie bags for birthday parties.
The St. Louis Carousel can be reserved for birthday parties and private functions. The St. Louis Carousel hosts special programs and events throughout the year. We are closed the first three weeks of January each year.
