Thank you for this great article! But, Lighthouse Point Park is not a state park but one of the crown jewels in the City of New Haven park system. And, the quote "It's as close to a fairy tale as you can get" was taken from an article in the wedding section published in Connecticut Magazine and appears ( with the credit) on our brochure. Regardless, our Looff/Carmel Carousel brings great joy to not only those that visit/ride but pride to the many workers and citizens who toil to keep this Folk Art treasure in operation for the generations to come.
