Rentals & Catering

Carousel Gardens puts the “fun” in “function", whether you’re hosting a private party, a school night outing, a company picnic or other corporate event. With 15 rides available for rental (including the famous antique carousel, the mini train and Musik Express), this enclosed amusement park is a playground for kids and grownups alike.

The Lupin Foundation Carousel Building, home of the historic, antique carousel featuring 54 hand-carved animals, is the centerpiece of the amusement park. This unique space is a great place to host casual or formal receptions, birthday parties and more. The amusement park grounds and Carousel Building are both available to rent as stand-alone venues or in combination.
