Me, my husband and our nephews went here for a trip to see some animals and just have a good day.. But apparently, you won't see much. It's only the farm animals that were left and most of the animals to see were gone. They have a good size play ground but that's about it. The food in stalls are bit pricey too. It's definitely a waste of money on our part cause our nephews didn't even enjoy their time,so not even an hour later we left.

This is a great place for children and adults to visit, with the renovations it is much improved. I have taken my children to Storybook Gardens and we have thoroughly enjoyed our day.

We took our grandsons, aged 6 and 8, as well as their 2 year old cousin to the park. There was something for everyone to do. We also had a picnic lunch and then bought ice cream which we thought was reasonably priced. The ferris wheel was a big hit with the two older kids although you do have to pay extra for the rides located at the park. Admission, rides and ice cream came to about $70. for our group. I think we all had a good time.

Storybook Gardens has been around for years and years for a reason.I would recommend it as a great place to stop and picnic even if you don't have children,and better yet if you do.
Definitely worth visiting,our family has been there many times thru the years
