The 59 animals of the famous Berkeley Tilden Park carousel are scheduled for a top- to-bottom renovation, 26 years and more than 3 million riders since the last one. This five-year undertaking, which began in March with the base of carousel, is going to cost about $1 million by the time it's completed. The East Bay Regional Park District is scrambling to raise the funds.

Right on, I used to work for the East Bay Parks District and had worked at Tilden on occasion. The carousel was always a cool landmark at the park, I'm very glad they are renovating it. If only they would add a coaster... ;) Yeah right.
