  • I used to love Story Book Gardens as a kid.. I have many happy memories there... Now that I have kids of my own I still take them at least once a summer. I miss the animals, but its still a great fami...  more »
  • We took our 4 and 6 yr they loved it, beaver tails and roasting marshmallows. The length of the trials was really nice. 
  • I loved the place when it was more animal centered. farm animals, peacocks, seals etc. In my opinion they killed the seals by sending them away, and eliminated basically all other animals. The water p...  more »

  • Simple fun rides for kids, big sand pit with hoses is a hige hit with my kids and it's placed right beside the great splash pad which makes cleanup easier. The leaping pad is a huge hit with the kids as is the great climbing structure. The storybook houses are fantastic for imaginative play. Not sure that the ride pass is a great value, just know what your kids like (mine is obsessed with rides) ride lines are typically very short.
  • Today i was to storybook. with my two kids there is so nice and fantastic very lovely!! but today a part about racism is very very very angry. by the clerk warking at the snack bar. i ordered ice cream and fries also had a receipt and then waited for orders. in my turn came clerk had closed window order he said ' i'm not receive your order' i said 'excuse me?' so i showed him the receipt the clerk reluctantly received the order. then i'm too embarrassed to openly. but someone(not asian) stand in line behind normally received orders!!! it was open discrimination before i didn't know what happend but the other thing that the person is not right for such a discrimination. i hope that you do not happen anymore !!!
  • Awesome Work, Although most Animals have now been done away with, it still manages to find away I to each person's hearts, esp. children and the nostalgic couples who like to come for Springbank Park and buy tickets to enter into Storybook Gardens ... This place was so popular at one point that busloads of children from places far away like Detroit would not g in their inner city youth for the sheet fun of the park and it's all day excursions that idividuals can extend their time at. Without boredom settling in ... Great place and I'm sure glade to see that this place is still around, given its history of losing any.als, accidently shipping off Londond prized Aquatic·Marine mammals only go have them to not arrive at their final destination alive ... sad ... I'd say!! but still I'd say it deserves a 5 star review for becoming stonge in the wake of the unfortunate pasts that it has endured from basically it's opening day!! The park just keeps on getter stronger and more well known ... Awesome!!
  • Awesome for the kids. Great splash pad. And a variety of playgrounds keeps your kids busy by letting them bounce and climb all day. My son is 2 and he loves it.
  • A whimsical place with a tiny village of historical and fairy-tale buildings, a splash pad, an outdoor theatre and a selection of amusement rides. Great for young kids.
