Open year round, the park also offers winter skating on the beautiful 250 metre outdoor skating trail.

On a warm summer day, this is an excellent place to take young children. There is a little of everything: animals, carnival rides, jungle gym and live shows.

A great spot to bring your significant other. RIght by the water and everything you'd need for a great date.

Storybook was refurbished in 2003 and is now open all year (excluding November). We went in the winter and enjoyed the ice skating. The channels through part of the park are frozen providing a unique skating experience so bring some hot chocolate and have some fun ! In the summer the kids can cool off at Slippery's Great Escape, the water play area or have fun climbing around at the Pirates' Island play area. Smaller children will find Storybook more enjoyable more than older teens I think. Hope this helps.

Lots of animals to see, and nursery rhyme themes. Large park with picnic area and paddle boats. Spend the day with the kids, they will love it! Bring the camera.

The splash pad and pirates cove was fun for the little ones. There is a fee for the rides, needs updating. Fun for a couple of hours.
