|Caption||Woodland Park Zoo opened Kiddyland in 1950 with 5 rides including this small carousel. In 1953-54, Kiddyland relocated to the south side of the zoo property, renamed Woodland Rides and added more rides. By the late 1970s, all amusement rides were removed in keeping with zoo's educational mission. |
This photo shows children riding the carousel horses while others wait in line for another ride nearby.
