The Tilden Park Merry-Go-Round is a carousel located in Tilden Regional Park near Berkeley, in unincorporated Contra Costa County. It was built by the Herschel-Spillman Company of Tonawanda, New York in 1911, and it is one of the few antique carousels left in the United States. Before arriving at Tilden in 1948, the carousel had seen service at amusement parks in San Bernardino, Ocean Beach, and Los Angeles[2] It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
