Open year round, the park also offers winter skating on the beautiful 250 metre outdoor skating trail.

For a Halloween event for younger children, I thought Storyspook Village was good. There were a lot of empty spots though, more displays or candy stops would help solve that.

Every summer I would take my daughter here when she was small. She loved the splash pad and the play equipment, as well. This is a great day out with the kids. The animals are also great for the little ones to see and spend time with.

It is a very good place to while away a sunny afternoon - the climbing area at the back of the park is what keeps my kids the busiest, and the waterpad is great in the heat of the Summer - other attractions such as animals are OK - but personally find it sort of sad to see them -... More

Nice gardens well maintained. Small rids for kids and hands in sand place. I think it's good for kids below seven year old try to avoid it when it sunny.

I remember taking my children to storybook gardens when they were young. They loved it! My favorite memory is seeing my son in his stroller pulling his bottle from a baby deers mouth in the petting area, yelling. .."no bambi NO!"
