If you haven’t taken your kids to Fairytale Town, then you are missing out on one of Sacramento’s oldest and most loved family destinations.
Fairytale Town has been inspiring children’s imaginations since 1959. This 2.5 acre play park brings Fairytales and Nursery Rhymes to life. With over 25 bright and colorful play structures to climb and explore on- it’s a great way to reinforce the love of literature through play.
Kids can slide down the giant shoe in “There was an Old Woman who live in a shoe”, they can sit in “Cinderella’s Carriage“, water the herbs in “Mr. McGregor’s Garden“, take a hike down the “Crooked Mile” or visit the “3 Little Pigs” and Eyore the donkey in the barnyard.
They also have year round theater performances and puppet shows for the kids (check their website for upcoming events). Fairytale Town is truly a family favorite for Sacramento area families.
My daughter celebrated her last birthday in “King Arthur’s Castle” and still talks about how much fun she had!
One thing to take into consideration when visiting this park is that if you have small children, you may want to bring your stroller and snacks.
They do allow outside food, but they don’t have strollers or wagons to rent (as many other parks do). They do have a concession and sell snacks, but I always prefer to bring in my own and have a picnic in “Sherwood Forest”.
Fairytale Town is located in William Land Park, across from the Sacrament Zoo and Funderland. They are open 7 days a week 9am-4pm. Admission is only $4.50 and for children under is FREE. You can also purchase combo passes to both the Zoo and Fairytale town, so on a warm spring day- arrive early and enjoy a full day of fun with your family. It will be an outing surely you will never forget!
