Storybook Gardens is a storybook themed outdoor park owned and operated by the City of London Parks and Recreation Department. Opened in 1958, Storybook Gardens provides a fun day of play and learning for families with young children. Park features in the summer season include several outdoor play structures, six amusement rides, a large splash pad, a sand and water play area, and music and dance at the outdoor stage. Open year round, the park also offers winter skating on the beautiful 250 metre outdoor skating trail. Storybook Gardens has been voted "Best Tourist Attraction" in the London Free Press "Best of London" readers poll for four years running, and has twice been awarded the "Best Value, Family Attraction" award by readers of WestJet's Up! magazine.

Super day out. The staff are astoundingly good with kids and very, very polite. From the two year old to the eight year old, all were impressed with the rides. Take your own food for a picnic and pack enough water. Will be making regular visits now.

Had a great day, had no idea how many different areas they had. The park is clean and lots of shade on a hot and sunny day. Some of the splash pad was in need of repair, but the kids did not care! Would go back again!

My son is 2.5 years old and had his first experience at SBG this year, and would recommend young children to attend hands down. There were so many great activities for his age (as I find it difficult sometimes to locate outdoor activities for this age group!) Although he wasn't keen on sitting and listening to the puppet stories, I... More

Have really enjoyed our year membership. For all the days we spent enjoying the climbing equipment, the bouncing pad, the local wild life - fish, geese, ducks, turtles and one evening a red tailed hawk eating his supper, the splash pad and the picnic areas - the price was well worth it. In fact, I would say buying the year... More

I am so happy I get to take my kids here now. I don't like that they have rides but whatever we just avoid that section. We go for the play equipment, splash pad, and my kids absolute favorite is the big bounce bubble. They absolutely love that! Even at 10 years old they still love it a such as... More

Great for kids 8 and under. Other than that, this place isn't much. Food is expensive and staff don't do much.

To get into the park, prices aren't too bad. The problem is that doesn't include any rides. Your children will be able to play on the trampoline, in the splash pad, and on the park equip, as well as tour the grounds and ride the pedal cars. If it's not busy, it's a fun place for a child to spend... More
