Easy to find... Cafesjian's Carousel is in St. Paul's Como Park, just south of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory and a few steps from the Visitor Center.

Directions to the park and a map are on the visitor's guide section of the Como Park website. While you're there, check information on parking and the colorful (and convenient) shuttle bus.

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 can sit in place of the chariot's front seat.
