One of the few remaining creations of famed wood carver Daniel Carl Muller, the Forest Park Carousel was forced to shut down in 2009, after the operator let its contract with the city expire. In May 2012, the historic merry-go-round re-opened under different management, so tykes can once again perch atop one of the jumping or standing horses while the A. Ruth & Sohn organ plays on. Birthday party options and Saturday clown shows add to the fun.
