Fairytale Town

Since 1959, this Land Park gem has been delighting children of all ages.  With friendly animals, lovely gardens, and over two dozen play areas inspired by nursery rhymes and fairytales, the park offers several hours of good fun and play.  From exploring the curving corridors of King Arthur’s Castle to hiding out with Robin Hood and his gang in Sherwood Forest, little (and big) imaginations are sure to run wild!

When you first arrive, simply follow the yellow brick road to the admissions gate where you are greeted by Humpty Dumpty sitting upon his wall (not yet having had his great fall).  At just $5.50 a person ($4.50 on weekdays), the admission fee to Fairytale Town is very reasonable.  And children under two get in free!  If you want to double up your park fun on your visit, be sure to ask about the Fairytale Town and Zoo (which is just across the street) combo admission.  Memberships are available for those wanting to make Fairytale Town a regular outing.

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill

To fetch a pail of water.

Jack fell down and broke his crown,

And Jill came tumbling after.

Up Jack got, and home did trot,

As fast as he could caper;

To Old Dame Dob, who patched his nob

With vinegar and brown paper.

Then Jill came home, and she did grin

To see Jack’s paper plaster;

Her mother whipped her, across her knee,

For laughing at Jack’s disaster.

The Crooked Mile

There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,

He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.

He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.

And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

The Old Woman in the Shoe

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.

She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do;

She gave them some broth without any bread;

She whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

My personal favorite attraction at Fairytale Town is Mr. McGregor’s Garden.  When you help care for the garden, you get to snack on it’s goodies!  Don’t fear Mr. McGregor catching you; he’s not home. 😉  Don’t forget to visit Peter and his mates at the rabbit hutch.  If you’re lucky, you’ll find one of them out for its walk and get to pet it.

Even visiting the toilets and throwing away your rubbish can be a trip for the imagination at Fairytale Town.

If you’re feeling a bit peckish after running around the park, visit the Dish and Spoon Cafe for lunch or a treat.
