There are so many exciting elements that will form the next phase of the Edmonton Valley Zoo’s transformation. Everything from new habitats and guest viewing areas to the revitalization of the original 1950’s carousel. With help from the Volunteer Woodcarvers at Fort Edmonton Park, the carousel is getting an uplift with some incredible new features. Instead of the traditional aluminum horse seats, the volunteer woodcarvers are creating new seats and chariots representative of the different endangered animals that are under the care and protection of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. For a donation, you can sponsor one of these newly hand-carved seats in memory or honour of a loved one, or to celebrate a milestone such as a retirement or company anniversary. For businesses, you can have the opportunity to showcase your sponsorship by having the carousel seat featured in the lobby of your business before the new carousel is operational! Find your favourite animal – the animal that most represents you, your loved one, or your business – and help revitalize one of Edmonton’s most precious gems. Donation options for a carousel seat include: $84 a month for 36 months (3 years) $125 a month for 24 months (2 years) $250 a month for 12 months (1 year) $3,000 one time payment With the monthly payment plans, pay the first installment at checkout and then we will contact you to set up a fast and convenient auto-payment plan.
** Although there are 25 seats available, only 20 will be on the Carousel at any given time. Although the donor will have permanent recognition on the carousel, this seat may come on and off the Carousel as needed.
