Overview

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.

I’ve been to a lot of kids parks, including Disneyworld. This is the best I’ve seen for playability for young kids. The water park is excellent and the pirate section is terrific. Wish we lived in Londo. I’d take the kids there time and again.

This is London's main tourist attraction! What a joke, just go to Springbank Park and have a picnic. What you save on admission will more than pay for a day of fun on your own. The place should be shut down it's so old.

Lots of geese and duck feces, watch your step! Great long trails and Story Book Gardens in the centre where you may pay to enter and let the kids have fun.
