Finding a Home for the Northgate Carousel

While we are fundraising, to help with the funds for the transition, we are also vigorously looking for a new home. The size and height of the Carousel has closed a number of locations from us, but we do believe a Durham Park with heavy traffic could be a very good move.

a)         We are looking for a new home to make sure the Historical Carousel keeps its home here in Durham. We have ventured over the city areas and come across Durham Parks as possible destinations for the Northgate Carousel. Bringing the Carousel to a park with enclosed area, will save this piece of history, and keep many families very interested in its new location, creating more traffic, as well as creating and renewing childhood memories for future generations. We plan to fund the relocation, transitions, manage and upkeep for the Carousel, and its new home.

II.    Why is this important

a)         The Carousel is an important landmark in the Durham area for many families and we have a huge following. We service families of all backgrounds but mostly families in disadvantage areas where income, transportation and language are daily barriers. Our goal is to keep this childhood fancy for those who hold it most dear and for future generations to create new memories.
