WELCOME TO TILDEN PARK MERRY GO ROUND


Welcome to a world removed from the hustle and bustle of modern day life.  A place where incredible artistry and glorious music combine with wholesome family fun.


The Tilden Park Merry Go Round has been part of the Berkeley and Bay Area family for over 60 years.  It boasts 4 rows of hand carved horses, chariots, cats, dogs, lions, tigers, toads, giraffes, sea monsters and more! 


"You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around--and why his parents will always wave back."

--William D. Tammeus, Pulitzer Prize Journalist
