What a wonderful find at the waterfront. Miniature train ride and 2 carousels. 3 rides for 5 dollars. A museum quality train caboose on display. Wonderful staff and a great way to spend an hour with friends or kids. The volunteers were so friendly.

Super cute for the little kids, they only take cash which is fine, very close to the beach, wish they had picnic tables.

North Bay's waterfront offers some of the most delightful attractions for young children. They have two carrousels and a small steam engine train ride that any child under the age of 10 would simply adore. We took nieces and nephews within that age group for multiple rides this summer and the joy we saw on these young children's faces simply... More

I've brought my kids to the Train and Carousel many times. Anyone can ride and it's inexpensive. It's really a great destination activity. Plus the beach is nearby and it's an awesome beach especially for little ones as it's so shallow for so long. There's also a great play structure at the beach for kids.

Located between Memorial Drive and the railway, they have a large parking lot. The 2 attractions - the miniature railway and carousel are definitely geared more for little kids.

My kids love taking the short walk from their grandparents house to play at the waterfront and no visit to the waterfront Is complete without a train ride and a couple of twirls on the carousels. Run by volunteers that love to make your kids smile.

This is rated as the number 1 tourist attraction in North Bay (by Trip Advisor). That may be so, but don't expect too much from this small amusement park (a bit of a stretch for a description). The train is fun for very young kids. The carousels are fine, but they are carousels in the end. Best to go on... More
