A Carousel for Walnut Beach?

An anonymous donor has offered to provide a fiberglass carousel to be installed at Walnut Beach, if the city will build a building to secure it, officials said.

The “flying horses,” or merry go round, as the ride was also known during the heyday of Walnut Beach, when Smith’s 17 Acre Park operated one, could be free to ride or a small admission charge to pay for the building and the upkeep could be levied.

The Walnut Beach Improvement Committee is reviewing the proposal.
