Deterioration Causes Chippewa’s Carousel to Close Earlier in Season

Posted on Tuesday, August 09, 2022 01:04 PM

Chippewa Park’s carousel ride will close a few weeks early due to signs of deterioration to the newly restored carousel horses.

“Due to the current stage of the restoration project, the carousel had to operate without the canopy installed this year,” said Cory Halvorsen, Manager of Parks & Open Spaces. “Since the restored horses were designed to withstand outdoor conditions, we decided to operate the ride this year on the condition that it would be monitored for signs of environmental impacts.”
