The Ross Park Carousel is closed for renovations. For questions, please call the Binghamton Parks and Recreation Department at (607) 772-7017.

With $500,000 in state funding awarded last fall, the City will restore the historic Ross Park Carousel to its original grandeur and relocate it closer to the park’s main entrance. Originally installed in 1920, the carousel’s jumping horses and original organ have seen better days. By constructing an enclosed structure to house and protect the restored carousel, future generations will continue to enjoy this treasured timepiece.

For the Binghamton Zoo, the 5th oldest in America, the relocation means in-demand space for redesign of its main entrance, kicking off a long-term plan to build a year-round educational center.
