Since Fairytale Town opened its gates in 1959, millions of delighted children have walked through its gates.  Though Fairytale Town has been updated and renovated through the years, it has never lost the childlike qualities it has always been known to have.

Plan to go for the day and relish in the nap your worn out youngster will take that afternoon.  The morning hours can be spent on the many playgrounds, free-standing climbing structures and the famous "The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe" slide...  Lunch is available for purchase at the Dish and Spoon Café, where typical attraction fare is available, but the organic and vegetarian foods are often just as tasty; outside food may be brought in the park if you prefer to pack your own.

After lunch, head over to Mr. McGregor's Garden, which often has hands on workshops in seed germination, worm composting, and other basic gardening skills.  Both the Mother Goose Stage and the Children's Theater will provide visitors with a variety of entertainment, but check the calendar before going to know what will be featured.

Between 3 and 4pm each day, the resident animals of the park are fed.  Watch and pet the many lambs, Vietnamese pot-belly pigs, Nigerian Dwarf goats, rabbits, donkey, Irish Dexter cow, chickens once they've had their fill.


Birthdays are magical times at Fairytale Town!  The website has a fabulous guide available to help you plan the party of a lifetime, no matter the age, budget or group size.  Download the Party Reservation and Planning Guide, then call (916) 808-7061 or email to make your reservation.


Summer months don't go by without FunCamps at Fairytale Town.  The Monday through Friday, 3 hours a day camps vary in theme and age appropriateness.  Registration for camps typically goes live in Spring.

Hours of operation: Spring/Summer (March 1-October 31) open 7 days a week 9am-4pm, guests in the park by 4pm may stay until 5pm; Fall/Winter (November 1-February 28) Thursday - Sunday 10am-4pm.  Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.

Dislike this park. Our trip to Sac zoo and Fairytale town was depressing!. Fairytale town is a over glorified park that you have to pay to get into. Don't waste your money.

So much fun! It was a beautiful park and perfect for our young children. We brought our lunch and had a picnic in the park. Lots of slides, play structures, animals and much more. we will definitely do this again!

Fairytale town was a waste of money. There wasn't much more there than a standard park with the exception of the two animals they had in the petting zoo. Maybe if you spent the extra money to have a birthday party it would be better. And the fact the parents get charged for admission is ridiculous. All in all I wasn't impressed with the park or the zoo. I think we will try Fresno next time.

Fairytale Town is a truly beautiful park for younger children and the adults who appreciate a space sized for the preschool and young grade school set. What a child and a parent might most enjoy here is a chance to run around, climb, climb, climb, and slide through a few hours of the day.

Slides are worked into many of the "sets" at Fairytale Town. My children's favorites were Owl's House, and the Red Barn. A few very young children did balk at the top of some slides, resulting in stress for both the child and the parent. If you have a new walker, don't worry — there are a number of smaller and more accessible slides for your child.

A wide array of animals are spread throughout the park: rabbits at "A Tale of Peter Rabbit", sheep at "Mary Had a Little Lamb", goats at "Three Billy Goats Gruff". The animals most likely to greet visitors right up at the fence and allow a pet or two (the donkey and the cow) are at the Red Barn.

The park is immaculate, with staff members out and about to direct park visitors to bathrooms, pick up errant trash, and make sure things are running smoothly for that "happy ever after" ending to your day.

Parking was not difficult any of the times we have visited Land Park, but I could see how it could be difficult on really busy days. Prepare to walk a bit from your car to whichever park you visit.

This is a beautiful place to come and spend a few hours with your little ones. It's primarily geared for preschool/kindergarden age but if you have a fun loving older child they will enjoy it as well. It is located across from the Sacramento zoo and a small amusement park for younger children. Bring your own lunch and enjoy the day. We have never done a party there but we've seen them and they look very nice.
