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.

This is a great place for families with small children! I loved how the entire place is developed around the child and children's' world. We all had a great time. The only down side is that they do not sell water. So make sure you...More

I first visited storybook gardens as a wee lad in 1962 and went often, it was nice to return to this place and see that the animals and exhibits and park are still putting smiles on the faces of young children.

Our 8-year-old daughter loved it! Her favorite part was actually the giant rope climbing structure in Pirate Island (or whatever the pirate area was called). She didn't get to enjoy the splash pad because we didn't know ahead of time if there were changing areas...More

Hello, I do believe that there are wheelchairs available on arrival for those that may be in need of them. They are free to use within the park. There is also a water wheelchair that can be used in the splash pad.
