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.

Great place for the little ones. Lots to explore and play and the added splash pads are great way to cool down from the heat.

This park had many things to do for young children. Lots of climbing structures, a splash pad, a large sand box and a village of small houses (about 5). There are 4 rides: a slide, a Ferris wheel, swings and an elephant ride. My son measures 48 inches and he could go on them all. You can get a bracelet... More

This wonderful park has been entertaining children and their parents for many years and is one of Ontario's premier theme parks. The park has modernized some of its attractions, with a large water park being a favourite. There are still the original storybook characters, but also pirate ships, a rope spider web, slides, Ferris wheel, swing, elephant ride. Our niece... More

My wife wanted to visit a childhood place of hers with our three children. She was disappointed with the focus no longer being on the nursery rhymes and other story book themed centers. Also, there were no animals. There were no water fountains that we could find on a day that was extremely hot. (We brought just enough with us).... More

Went with my friend's kids. They loved it! The rides were a tad too long but was well worth it. Water park was good.

The attractions are great for small children. The rides are very simple and slow. We took a 2 year old and he was not impressed with the rides. He loved the splash pad and it is well done but very surprised with no animals. Nice picnic area but food booths are very expensive so suggest packing a picnic lunch with... More

I took the grandkids. They had a great time at the playground. No animals but I didn't live here when they had them so I don't know what that was like so I can't compare. The pricing is fair and the area is beautiful. After spending a few hours in Storybook gardens we walked through spring bank park and had... More
