The Forest Park Carousel

The Forest Park Carousel was originally built in Dracut, Massachusetts and moved to Queens in the 1970’s. It was sent to its present location after the previous carousel was destroyed by a fire. The present day Forest Park Carousel was carved out of wood by artist Daniel Muller, a German immigrant. The playful structure, which still houses the original band organ, was listed on the national Register of Historic Places in 2004.
