Photos and memories from viewers along the First Coast from the historic St. Augustine carousel
We have so many fond memories at the Carousel! My oldest begs to stop there, and we usually do, weekly! I really hope it doesn't go! From engagement photos...
To visits with grandparents...
To silly faces...
And goofy brothers!
One of my favorite photos of my kiddos; 2003.
Took some of my engagement pictures there! ♥️
My Granddaughter's first Birthday party.
Very special memories of our wedding 1/15/95 & anniversaries since.
Grandson last week! He really liked! We will miss this for our future grands. 😢
My two girls with their great uncle. We loved going to this carousel each visit we took to St. Augustine. Sad to see it go.
My baby girl loves the carousel. Went for her 1st bday in May. Will have to try and make it again before it's gone.
My daughter, Courtney, last May.
My husband and I took anniversary photos on there a few years ago. Photo is by Cameron Jupiter Austin.
The carousel came to town when I was 7 yrs. old. Several generations of my family grew up coming to Davenport Park to ride the carousel. A lot of St. Augustine natives as well as people who have moved here over the years don't even know that the park has a name as it's been dubbed locally as " The Carousel Park ." My 11 yr. old has Asperger's Syndrome, and her heart is broken as the carousel was her "special place" to go since she was a toddler. Today I brought my children to ride the carousel one last time.

Just last week we took 2 of our grandkids. Took their dad many times over the last 25 years. Love it❣
My son Ethan. In 2010-ish.
This was her first time on a carousel.
2019. We captured these moments every time the kiddos visited. We’ve watched them growing up riding this carousel. Thanks for the memories Soules family. ❤️
This is Luke, he is a service dog in training for K9s for Warriors! I thought his future Warrior would love a picture of him riding a treasured piece of history of St. Augustine! Thanks Soules Family for all the memories you have given to us! ❤️❤️❤️
My grandson when he was younger and is now 5 years old. His mother, my daughter also grew up with the Carousel being a part of her childhood. "The Carousel Park".

One of our first outings after moving to St Augustine was riding our bikes down to the carousel from the marina. The attendant took our photo and it is one of my favorite. I am sad it will no longer be there. I always loved seeing it on my way home everyday!
We will be driving to visit the horses in port Charlotte in the future. So glad to hear they are being dismantled for relocation and not retired.
It was a special occasion to sit with a beautiful mermaid on our last ride. My daughter was ecstatic 💙
