Salem's Riverfront Carousel is located at the intersection of Front St and State St in the heart of historic Downtown Salem, Oregon's capital city! The Carousel is nestled in the center of Salem’s Riverfront Park halfway between Gilbert House Children's Museum and The Eco-Earth Globe near the bank of the Willamette river near our neighbor Willamette Queen sternwheeler.
