Easy to find
Cafesjian's Carousel is in St. Paul's Como Park, just south of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory and the Visitor Center.
For directions to the park and a map see the Como Park website.
While you're there, check information on parking and the convenient (and colorful) shuttle bus.
Our carousel can accommodate one wheelchair per ride. A rolling ramp provides access to the carousel platform,
where one chariot is modified so a wheelchair sits in place of the chariot's front seat.
