A outdoor walking tour of 3D story book type displays. Great place for young and old to let their imagination run free. Bring a camera for sure. Children will burn off excess energy playing on many of the exhibits making for peace and quiet in the car.

My husband and I went here. It was fun for me to see all the tales come to life and take pictures. (Can you tell my husband was a reluctant participant?) When we first arrived, there is a castle for the entrance. The castle has a stairway that you can walk up. Playground equipment was cleverly integrated.... like a giant... More

It is really impressive how much effort and upkeep is put into this unique and very special park. Our grandson always loves to visit and we spend hours exploring, talking about all the historical characters and old favorite storybook characters that have come to life here! What a wonderful brought to life experience for children - and memories of simpler... More

I left the planning up to my husband this day, and I was flabbergasted at how adorable the park was. So unusual. My kids all loved it. Our boys are 13, 4, and 2 and the new teen even enjoyed it. They were so worn out after exploring this park. I couldn't believe it was free.

They are so great here, they take donations to keep the park running so we always try to go in the summertime. There are lots of fun things for kids to see and to play on. They base everything on fairy tales, and integrate newer cartoons into the park. My son loves it... It is also a lot of fun... More

Visited Storybrook island with grandparents and young children. The park is absolutely charming! Almost every nursery rhyme is represented with some kind of unique playhouse/sculpture/ride. It was almost sensory overload for young kids because it is so colorful and fun. There were some Disney characters as well. Riding the train and carousel is a fee but entering the park is... More
