Riverside Park amusement rides

Riverside Park carousel and train will remain closed due to the cost involved in making the rides compliant with provincial regulations. If you have a 2020 amusement pass, they can be refunded. Bring passes to any recreation centre for a full refund. If you prefer to keep them, they can be used when amusement rides re-open.
