CAROUSEL PARK

Visitors can ride an oldtime merry-go-round and relax at snack bars and picnic tables.

The 62-year-old carousel, a top attraction at Coney Island in the early days of the century, has 72 hand-carved wooden animals; music is provided by two vintage German band organs, one of which is the largest in the world. Visitors who hook the brass ring ride for free.

BOARDWALK FUN. On the boardwalk, stands sell light meals, beer and soft drinks, pizza, ice cream and souvenirs. A clown and a baby elephant are on hand.

Admission: free; rides, 25 cents. Hours: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
