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.

rider in wheelchair Accessible
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.
