Carousel Park & Equestrian Center

The breezes are blowing and the birds are singing all throughout the beautiful 200+ acres of Carousel Park and Equestrian Center. Carousel features sweeping meadows, ponds and a lake, miles of tranquil walking trails, and a one of a kind bark park. Enjoy the serenity of nature as the swans, ducks, and geese glide peacefully on the lake. C

Home of the New Castle County Mounted Patrol, all visitors to the park will enjoy the beauty and grace of magnificent horses roaming the meadows. Open daily from dawn until dusk.
