A carousel with colorful, ornate horses on display. The ride is surrounded by a decorative fence, and the area is well-lit with string lights. The carousel is not currently in motion.

The carousel has been undergoing refurbishment since February, with various horses roped off for work. Beneath the ten horses currently unavailable, the floor has been freshly stained brown.

A hardwood floor with partially sanded and unsanded sections, a yellow-and-black safety strip, a vertical pole with white ropes, and a white animal figure's legs in the background, possibly from a carousel.

When compared to the rest of the carousel’s flooring, this section looks much cleaner and darker.

The horses aren’t just roped off for work on the floor. Crews are also repainting the entablature on the edge of the carousel’s roof. The tarps on the horses keep them protected.

The relief sculptures above the roped-off horses are partially repainted. The frieze features angelic figures with flags and eagles, leftover from when the attraction was The Liberty Carousel over 100 years ago. The Philadelphia Toboggan Company constructed the ride in 1917.
