Port Dalhousie Lakeside Carousel to reopen tomorrow

The Port Dalhousie Lakeside Carousel will reopen this Friday.

The family favourite was closed after being open for just four days this spring/summer when a storm dumped 80mm of rain on an already flooded park area.

The carousel usually opens during the long weekend in May, but flooding due to high water levels on Lake Ontario forced the city to keep the ride closed until this past August long weekend.

City officials say the carousel will reopen on Friday, Aug. 9. 

City crews have spent the last two days pumping water out of the area, and cleaning up any mud and debris following the intense rain on Tuesday night. 

An assessment of the carousel shows there was no damage sustained due to the active weather.
