Mesker unveils carousel

Jun 29, 2017

A new carousel is up and running at Mesker Park Zoo and Botanic Garden.

The zoo opened the attraction nearly 45 years after a carousel on nearby Mesker Park Drive was sold and moved out of Evansville.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke attended Wednesday's ribbon-cutting and told WNIN it’s good to see kids making new memories.

The new Engelbrecht Carousel features replicas of 30 endangered animals.

The 2-and-a-half minute ride costs $2.

It’s open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, and during special events.
