Good place for grandparents to take younger grandkids. Lots to do from rides (these cost a ticket), to a splash pad and climbing structures. Reasonable prices on some food. Try going during the week, not as busy.

My grand-daughter could get on the same rides over and over. Scared of some at first (only 3 yrs old) she watched others and gained confidence, squealed with delight and didn't want to leave.

Storybook Gardens is a great place to have some fun with the kids. There's some cost to get in (don't remember), and once in, there are a number of rides (ferris wheel etc) which you had to purchase tickets for, as well as a splash pad, climbing apparatus, trampoline, small theatre with a show, and a small petting area with...

We had a great day with our 2 & 6 yr olds. Both kids loved Pirate's Island and it was nice to have various climbing structures altogether. The bouncing pillow was also lots of fun. We went mid week and it wasn't very busy at all. A great place for the little ones.

My daughter is 2 so this park is perfect for her. I think it's best suited to children under 6yrs. The staff do a great job keeping the park clean, running storytime and other entertainment, and offering a friendly environment. The splash pad is a great feature as well as all of the playground equipment. I like that you can... More

My kids ( 3 and 5) had a great time. They really enjoyed the little village but Pirate's Island was definitely favourite part.

Storybook Gardens has changed since I went as a 16 year old - it was fun for all ages then but now, not so much. My 12 year old niece was bored, 10 year old nephew was here there and everywhere and my 8 year old niece was enthralled. They used to put on plays with proper costumes and act... More

The plus: Easter egg hunt activity. The minus: an over-rated children park that cost $10. The park is quiet spacious, with different themes in each little section. My daughter is 7yo and she especially enjoyed the different height of slides and the bouncy pillow. To enjoy the park, spend at least 1-2 hours.

My friend, myself and our 5 and 6 year old daughters went on the first day of the season. The price was low that day as a lot of the attractions were not open yet such as most of the rides and the splash pad. The kids enjoyed themselves and there was plenty to keep them busy for a few... More
