Visitors can once again mount a horse in America’s oldest public park. A carousel horse, that is.

Children and adults can take a spin (or two or three) on the Frog Pond Carousel on Boston Common, opening April 15. The carousel will be open through Columbus Day weekend.

Boston Common was founded in 1634 and marks the start of Boston’s Freedom Trail. The park, located in the heart of the city, also offers a Frog Pond with year-round activities, a playground, baseball field, sculptures and memorials, and free Shakespeare on the Common.

The carousel is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visitors should check the carousel’s website for any potential time changes. Rides cost $4 for a single ride or guests can purchase a 10-ride card for $30.
