This little park was well maintained. It was a delight to take pictures with several fairy book characters; even for my older kids.

Not only does this park offer FREE admission, but it’s the cutest and best one we’ve ever visited! Great way for your kiddos to get rid of energy while exploring and using their imagination. You DON’T want to miss this place!

All of your favourite fairy tale characters are at this park. There is no entry fee to the park, although they do accept donations. It is geared towards younger children; however, my children (9 & 7) enjoyed it too.

As it is a law to not discriminate against service dogs we do allow them in the park.
