Theme Park · Water / Amusement Park
Take your children to an enchanting park corner and enter a world of stories at Storybook Gardens.

Built in 1958 with some of the original features still open, the garden has plenty of activities to keep the family entertained. You'll find food and drink served at several concessions across the gardens. Note that bottled water is not sold but visitors are encouraged to bring their own containers to fill up at the fountains.

  • Storybook Gardens is a London, Ontario Classic. It has been in operation in the city for years, and many people who grew up with is as kids now take their kids there themselves. With a great waterpark, lots of activities and friendly staff, Storybook Gardens is a great place to take the kids for the day and burn off some energy in the summer. If you plan on going a few times, make sure that you get a family pass which is good for the season. They're also open in the winter with an ice skating trail!
  • Lots of fun with the kids. We were there for the end of the winter skating season. They have a nice sized outdoor figure 8 rink and also do skate rentals. Family day had pancake breakfast and a hay ride.
  • I visit Storybook Gardens usually at least once a year with large groups of children. It is a great location with lots of things to see and to do, and a great layout. They are always updating things, and it's always clean and the staff always friendly. It is very natural itself, and it is also located in a beautiful park, so if you need your boost of vitamin D or just to enjoy some nature, this is a great place to take your children. It's a nice balance of fun and exploring with the more interactive stuff your children crave.
  • Members for the second year we are big fans of SG. Ice skating in winter, awesome rides and fun for the kids in spring.summer.fall. :) Really a MUST in London. Nice "pirate ship" and climbing structures in the back, great waterplay for hot days, and cool shaded areas to eat lunch. There is a cool carousel outside (which members get to us) and a neat miniature train (also outside). :) Excellent!
  • Kids liked it so much. Entry cost is less and you are allowed to take your own food inside unlike wonderland. Each ride needs a ticket which costs between $1-3 per person. You can sped whole day without getting bored. Get the map at the entrance to explore the garden better.
