Carousel House was a facility in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, which provided a recreation center for people with disabilities from the city.

It was the only of its kind in the whole of the USA, and was closed following the Covid-19 pandemic, with city officials stating that the building was unsafe.

The center ran from 1987 until closure in 2021, serving many thousands of disabled people, including hosting wheelchair basketball tournaments.

What does the future hold? REBUILD!

A project to rebuild a new center on the site took place in the fall of 2021, and thankfully there will be a new center built on the same site, serving the same community in the future.

The city council is holding design meetings on a new center to be built on the same site, during March 2022.
