ADVANCE TIMED TICKETS REQUIRED
Reservations are required. Please reserve a specific time of arrival for your group and do your best to arrive during that 30-minute window of time. Tickets now available for Nov. 24-Dec. 17. Tickets for Dec. 18-Dec. 30 will be available on December 1st.
NEW CARILLON CHRISTMAS HOURS
To encourage compliance with Governor DeWine's statewide, overnight curfew, we have adjusted the hours to 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm seven days a week.
MINIATURE TRAIN RIDES CANCELLED
Our valued, long-time partner, the Carillon Park Rail and Steam Society, will not be operating train rides this season. As an all-volunteer organization comprised primarily of senior citizens, they are unable to provide the personnel necessary for the safe operation of their scale railroad equipment.
Please maintain a six foot distance from others while visiting the park. Markers have been placed throughout the campus to promote social distancing.
MASKS ARE REQUIRED
We are requiring everyone to wear masks covering noses and mouths at all times while at the Park, whether indoors or outdoors, to help ensure the safety of all guests, volunteers, and staff. The unique blend of popular indoor and outdoor spaces necessitates this practice.
