My kids loved the Storybook Gardens. They liked the rides ($2 for each ride or $12 for all day pass - but only 5 rides there) and the splash pad as well as the pirate ship and slides. They had some little shows going on during the day too. Food was reasonably priced. I doubt teenagers would enjoy this place... More

Went with a 4 year old and a 12 year old. Both loved it. Really only four rides... but there's a good sized water park and a huge park! There's a little village with toys which was cute. My daughter loved it! I'd recommend this to anyone with kids under ten years. Bring a wagon... there's a lot of standing... More

My sister and I took our two little ones here yesterday. The splash pad is nice, but that's about it. Everything else is rundown (missing locks on stalls in the small washrooms, concrete ponds with no water, etc.). It took a long time to get food, even though there was no line, and the poutine was cold. There were no... More

Very good for the kids. Inexpensive but the rides look like they're from a old carnival, and even broke down while we were there. The kids loved the pirates playground and the amazing splash pad. The bouncy floor they had was a blast for all of us (like a bouncy castle thats open with sand around it). Ice cream was... More

Overall our experience was great, kids loved everything there. I will admit I expected more after hearing some great reviews. But after seeing my kids faces at the end made it amazing. To break it down, it has only 6 rides 2 are on the outside of the park, nothing special. Then they have an amazing water park and amazing... More

We attended on Canada Day and our boys had a great day. The park does not have a tonne of bells and whistles but to little people that does not matter. There are several playground areas, rides (that cost a extra on top of the admission) and a splashpad. We took our own snacks and drinks to avoid those extra... More

Last week I took my 4 year old grandson to Storeybook Gardens. We have been there many times in previous years but this was our first time this year and we were very pleasantly surprised. They have taken a great place and made it even better with new interactive play spaces and lots of variety. There is a new waterslide,... More

My almost-3-year-old loved it here. At only $7.50 to get in, it's the best attraction in the area! The splash pad is amazing - huge with lots of different areas to play in for toddlers and lots of chairs for parents. Staffed very well with cheerful employees. The pirate playground is also huge with areas suitable for toddlers and areas... More

Storybook Gardens is a long time favourite destination for kids in southern Ontario. This was one of my favourite day trips when I was a kid. I just returned for a delightful visit with our young niece and nephew. They enjoyed everything. The story book theme, the rides, the slides, the pirate ships, the spider web rope climbing, the water... More
