Cincinnati Parks is gearing up for one if its biggest ribbon cuttings of the month at Smale Riverfront Park. Carol Ann's Carousel officially opens Saturday with a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. Afterward the celebration continues with cake, food vendors, street performers, and free carousel rides from 1- 7 p.m.

Were you aware that a brand new carousel is coming to Smale Riverfront Park in 2015? It’ll be at the base of Vine Street with additional trees and water features. Community input is now being accepted for the carousel design, and one place you can see some of the history of Cincinnati parks and attraction is the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County’s downtown branch. Mark Perzel learns more about this exciting new addition to the riverfront, and how listeners can provide input, from Steve Schuckman with the Cincinnati Parks Department and Patricia van Skaik from the library.
