Took my children here when they were young. I also came here when I was a little girl. There is so much fun things to see and do for little children. Good for children 8 and under. Older children I think would not benefit from this place. Maybe someday I'll be back with my grandchildren.

I used to come here as a child so was hesitant to bring my son once I heard things had changed so much, as I used to love it. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Although certain things I remember are no longer there, it is a great place to spend a few hours with tons of fun things to do.... More

When I was 5, there was nothing better than going to Storybook Gardens, seeing the Lynx, the seals, the otters, and going on those HUGE red slides. Now, it feels way to modernized, the animals are gone (for the most part), and it's too "cautious", if that makes any sense. There isn't much freedom for kids to run on their... More

There's a splash pad, rides, farm, lots of walking paths, shows and different climbing equipment. There's food stores in the park, however we've normally just brought a bag with some drinks and snacks from home. Something different to do that younger kids enjoy!

We went for the Halloween 'StorySpook' Gardens night. There was no charge for the adults - which was nice - so with our one toddler the total family cost was $12. This was the absolute MAX that this was worth. As another review suggested, treats were scant (not a problem for us with a toddler, but an older kid would... More

2 Adults 2 Children = $67.80?? Totally not worth it, Trick or treat? What a joke! each of my boys got 8 Halloween treats each. Crafts? I do better at home. Hunted House, pathetic. Really disappointed as they list this as a family event? It's for the children only. NOT worth it in my opinion!!

Was here a few years back but my kids still talk about this place. It's a wonderful day for young children with interactive playgrounds, water play area and animals. The are is large enough to keep children entertained but still small that the kids are able to see everything.

We absolutely love Storybook Garden. Its something we did faithfully when our children were younger. Its a great spot for younger children. When we have family or friends come to London we take them here. One of the things we loved about Storeybook Gardens is the opportunity for children to both have fun and learn. Its a great day trip... More
