Help keep the Inner Harbor Carousel in Baltimore and Part of our Community!

This petition had 853 supporters

For the past 31 years, the Inner Harbor Carousel has been providing a family-friendly, low cost attraction for kids and adults who visit the Inner Harbor. We are sad to announce that we have just been notified that we are to shut down operations effective this February and remove the Carousel from its location by the end of March.

The Carousel ownership has been working with the city of Baltimore for many years and has submitted many proposals to both preserve and enhance the look and feel of the Carousel as well as add additional low cost attractions to our Baltimore visitors and local communities. We’d love to see more life added to the Inner Harbor. More tax revenue flying into the city. More family friendly, affordable attractions; cleaner bathrooms, more security and cheaper parking. More attractions would undoubtedly benefit our sea port and our community. But the answer to revitalization does not lie in erasing a part of our history. Our Inner Harbor needs more attractions, not less.

Our community needs family-friendly amenities that complement our historic culture. At $2.00 a ride it is cheaper than a bottle of water on the promenade. Our riders are of all ages and ethnicities. Who can resist the nostalgia of a Carousel? We were excited at the opportunity to work with the city on bringing new attractions to the area. And while we have been unsuccessful in our attempts, we are committed to this effort and to the residents of Baltimore.

Please help us in our efforts to stay in Baltimore by signing this petition and reaching out to your city representatives! We don’t want Baltimore to lose this rare and unique American art form and risk losing a part of our history and community.
