This was the first time I had been been to Storybook Gardens in several years. To be honest, I was afraid I would not like it as mush as I had before. But wow - was I ever surprised! It is absolutely beautiful and there is so much for the kids to do! It is extremely well kept and the... More

We come here a few times a year and my kids always have a blast. They have a great splash park that my kids could live in, on a hot day and the giant "pillow" is always a huge hit. This year, my kids were both old enough to spend a lot of time on the climbers which was nice... More

We spent about 1.5 hours here on a September Sunday with two ten year olds. I knew it was a stretch for this age, but wanted to do something outdoors. Unfortunately, it was too cool for the water park and the "Enchanted Forest" that is included with grounds admission did not really hold their attention. The most time was spent... More

Storybook gardens has come a long way from what it used to be! They have made sure some of the old storybook characters are still represented (Humpty Dumpty, Hickory Dickory, The Old Lady in the Shoe, etc) but have added so many new attractions that the kids of today can relate to! The grounds are spectacular, the staff are amazing... More

This place used to have the most wonderful theme of nursery rhymes and fairy tales. Everything was storybook related and different than any similar place targeted at children. Now it mostly has a splash pad and play equipment. I mean my kids still like it for what it is. But there are splash pads all over and lots of parks... More

Great place for little kids, would definitely go again! Some areas need a little updating, but overall kids have fun, that is what matters.

My daughter was able to crawl on a spiderweb, Slide down Jack and Jill's slides and a multitude of other things. We took a boat ride on the Thames River, which looked like coffee with cream and not blue or green. We spent a wonderful day there and took lots of photos for her memory book. Highly recommended if you... More

We had gone to Storybook gardens years ago with our children. This was now an opportunity to take our Grandchildren as they returned to Canada from Africa. The attraction did have some interesting places the the children could play on but the apparent highlight was the small rides. When we paid our entry fee we were asked if we wanted... More
