About the Conservation Carousel
With so many people’s gracious support, we raised more than $540,000 to finish the Conservation Carousel and construct a heated structure to operate year-round. A ride on the Conservation Carousel is by donation, raising funds for future conservation projects while educating children about the incredible animals they’re enjoying and surrounded by at the zoo. Thank you to everyone who supported the Conservation Carousel Project!
The Edmonton Valley Zoo children’s carousel is one of only two working 1959 Herschel Spillman Children’s carousels in operation, the other of which is in the Herschel museum! For years the carousel was in a state of overhaul/restoration. Included in the restoration were 20 all-new carved zoo animals, 2 carved “chariots,” new hardwood decking, 52 new decorative panels, a new electrical system, new lighting, a new sound and PA system, and an updated drive system, all done by the Fort Edmonton Park volunteer carving group and their partners.
