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.

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.

Fondly remember the old Gardens of my childhood. Took our Daughter to the new one and it is nice. Some of the old stuff is gone (animals, ect.) but there are new things to see and do. A nice afternoon.

We have been to Storybook many times in the summer but it was so special to go skating there in the winter. The trails with the lights and the little buildings all make it so special.
