Our family tries to do local things on the weekends, either staying in our town, or in the surrounding areas. Grown Local posts showcase some of the best things to do in our area.
Fairytale Town is one of my absolute favorite places in our area. It's a large park, full of play structures inspired by fairytales and nursery rhymes. I went there as a child, and love taking my own two there now.
King Arthur's castle surrounded by a moat greets you as you enter. To the left is Captain Hook's pirate ship.
To the right, the Old Woman who lived in a shoe.
In between there are animals, (the three little pigs! Mary's lamb!), Mr. McGregor's Garden where children can water plants and see an alphabet garden, Cinderella's coach and horses, Sherwood Forest, and the all time favorite of children everywhere, The Crooked Mile, a raised path through bushes that children run, walk, and laugh through, over and over.
Fairytale own has been in Sacramento for over 50 years and it is truly a treasure. Promoting both literacy and imagination, Fairytale Town inspires children to simply play.
It is such a gift to have this park close to us to take our children to.
