Chariot Restoration

The Chippewa Park Carousel includes two chariots, with two benches each, to accommodate riders who cannot, or do not wish to, mount a horse. It has been determined that neither chariot is original and it has been decided to build two new chariots.

The Carousel Restoration Committee also decided to design both chariots to accommodate wheelchair occupants.  The two chariots will be returned to the original factory style both in carvings added to the exterior (which are being created by the Thunder Bay Carvers), as well as the appropriate paint scheme. Additionally, a C.W Parker logo will be added to the rear of each bench.
