Part of Griffith Park
4730 Crystal Springs Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90027, USA

The Merry-Go-Round was constructed in 1926 in San Diego and was moved into Griffith Park in 1937 by the Davis Family. The carousel contains 68 lavishly decorated horses and is the only remaining four-abreast carousel from the Spillman Engineering Company in the world. At the center of the merry-go-round is a Stinson 165 Military Band Organ with a repertoire of over 1500 songs. It was at this carousel where Walt Disney first thought up the idea of Disneyland while watching his daughters ride.
