It is one of only two remaining Dentzel carousels having original factory paint on the animals. There are 44 animals and two sleighs, all original to the date of purchase by Weona Park. The animals includes three giraffes, three reindeer, three goats, one zebra and 34 horses.

The park also includes natural areas, a basketball court, recreational fields, a skate park, an amphitheater with seating for outdoor concerts and a newly renovated miniature golf course. Picnic pavilions, kitchen and bathroom facilities round out a perfect setting from  family reunions to festivals.
