For over one hundred years, Como Regional Park has played a vital role in meeting the recreational needs of residents of Saint Paul and surrounding communities. Inspired in part by the landscape designs of H.W.S. Cleveland, Frederick Nussbaumer, Superintendent of Parks from 1891 to 1922, worked tirelessly to create an outdoor haven for the area's urban population.

Cafesjians Carousel at Como Regional Park

cafesjian's carousel at Como Regional ParkCafesjian's Carousel was built in 1914 by Philadelphia Toboggan Company. It is known as PTC 33 because it is the 33rd machine they made. The company employed German immigrants to do most of the carving and painting. The word "toboggan" in the company name is an old term for roller-coaster, which was the company's original product.
This year, the Carousel's hours are expanding to include all Mondays, and the free days will be held on Holidays. This is good if, like me, you work on Mondays, but not so great for the crowds.  If you want to ride for free, be ready to stand in line. Otherwise, at  $2.00 per person, tickets are affordable every day. Children under 2 can ride for free with a paying adult and adults over 90 are also free.
