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.

We used to take the nieces and nephews here when they were little. Now they take their kids to the park. Accessible, affordable and well maintained.

Fun and affordable! I was say top end is 8 years old though. I went with three kids and the 10 year old had to try a bit harder to find fun.

Don't waste money on the wristband, especially if you have smaller children. Lots of activities don't require it.

For our 4 year old grandson Storybook Gardens is a great place to have fun. He loves the water park and the rides. We like that you can have a ton of fun, see and do everything in a few hours.

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.
