Behind the Scenes at the Prospect Park Carousel

For opening day of the Prospect Park Carousel, Cindy went behind the scenes with the Parks Department and the carousel staff and shared some of the amazing history of this artistic masterpiece.

The beautifully-carved horses, lion, and giraffe of the carousel, as well as the real, live animals in the neighboring Prospect Park Zoo, will be highlights on our new Brooklyn’s Backyard Family Program, offered on the first Sunday of every month.
