#TBT to when the Carousel first came to Great Park and we replaced its original top before opening it to the public in 2010. The top was replaced again in 2020, and the carousel was recently reopened after being closed for renovations to its animals, floors, mirrors, and artwork.

Have you seen the improvements in person yet? Take a spin on the Carousel the next time you’re at Great Park. Learn more at yourgreatpark.org/carousel.
