The Salem Riverfront Carousel is an ornate, hand crafted carousel ride located at Riverfront Park in downtown Salem. The beautiful amusement was created after Salem Riverfront Carousel Founder Hazel Patton visited Missoula, Montana and came across America’s first old-world style carousel built since the Great Depression. The Salem Riverfront Carousel took approximately 6 years to build, all with the help of dedicated volunteers and community partners who still run the carousel to this day. Every animal on the carousel have their own adoption stories and many were sponsored by Salem community members. Each animal on the Salem Riverfront Carousel has its own name. The ‘original 42’ animals are mostly horses but also include a mule, a zebra and even a magical winged unicorn. The Salem Riverfront Carousel team are in the process of adding some more fun friends to the mix like Poncho the elephant and Ramses the friendly shark.
