Carousel set to spin again at Myriad Gardens in Oklahoma City
The Myriad Botanical Gardens, which for several years attracted hundreds of families each winter with a temporary carousel, is set to add a permanent ride in August between the park's children's garden and the Thunder Fountain.
“This was destined for it,” said Maureen Heffernan, executive director of Myriad Gardens. “It has a cover so it will help protect the carousel and it is near our children's garden and the Thunder Fountain so it can't be in a better position.”
Everything but the blue and white canopy will be reassembled under the pavilion and will reopen fully lit and with its mirrors and array of animal figures intact. The ride also includes a bench for riders with disabilities. The carousel seats about 30 people.
