Coolidge Park Carousel
Traveling from New York to Massachusetts and spending a great deal of time in Atlanta, this beautiful carousel was built by Gustav Dentzel in 1895. It delighted and served Atlanta residents until its dismantling in the 1960's after a lack of funding. A group of local Chattanooga investors found the tattered remains and hired a company of artists to restore the grand merry-go-round, adding new horses, sleds and other animals so it could be admired at its present home in Coolidge Park. Children can ride atop a valiant steed for a mere 50 cents and parents can join them or watch from the comfort of a nearby rocking chair.
