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.

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!"

Just Awesome! I have a very active 2 year old who is hard to manage sometimes. Here at Story Book Gardens he was able to roam as he pleased and we could just hang back and let him interact with other kids. There is a splash pad and even a mini train ride that our son went nuts over. Overall... More

I used to love going to Storybook Gardens when I was a kid. I don't think it cost my parents an arm and a leg to enter at that time though. So much of the original feel of Storybook Gardens has been lost that I stopped taking my kids once the price hiked up to nearly $30 for a family... More

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

Haven't been in a few years, but it still has the same charm. Too bad Old Mac Donald's Farm is no longer there, but the new splash pad is a great addition. Great place for the kids to wear off some energy.

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
