I don't have kids, so I had not been to Fairytale Town even thought I've lived in Sacramento for decades. I am so sad I haven't been before, because it's charming and smart and fun! Barnyard animals? Check. A garden which allows for a conversation about healthy foods and how plants go? Check. Shaded places for snacks and meals? Check. A crooked mile that was actually way more challenging than I thought it would be? That, too. Luckily I had my trusted friend Holden to help me maneuver around the mile. Kids bonded immediately with each other, no one was shoving or screaming, it was really idyllic. Considering it is right on Land Park Drive, it is also very serene and lovely. I can't wait to go back!

Absolutely love this place! I got a membership there and take my 3 year old grandson quite often. He loves the slides and the animals he gets to see up close and personal. Great place for the little ones to play at! Definitely recommend going!

Fairytale town was a special destination for family outings as a child. It was a special place when in high school to go with friends and dates.
Who says you can’t go home? Well I recently did... and let me tell you Fairytale town was just as wonderful today as in my fond memories.
Clean, well maintained and friendly staff. No electronics- unless the boxes that tell stories and sing songs count. But you have to have a “magic” key to hear.
Magic is the “key” here. It’s magical to see the youngsters using their imaginations. Magic to see them enjoying the same structures I climbed, ran, sat on in my youth. Imagine such a place still exists!
In Fairytale town it does!

We really didn't know what to expect but my three-year old granddaughter was here and we needed to entertain her for the day. She absolutely LOVED this place! She was able to run, climb, slide and recognized the nursery rhymes. The place is spotless - no trash or litter, the landscaping is pristine and the food was even good at the snack shop.
