Built in 1958, Storybook Gardens is within 20 acres, located in the middle of beautiful Springbank Park. A cherished favourite family destination since 1958, Storybook is an enchanted storybook environment for young children, themed around storybooks, fairy tales and nursery rhymes.

In the winter, the park features a beautiful outdoor 250 meter skating trail. The trail is refrigerated for excellent skating conditions as the trail winds its way through the trees, filled with holiday lighting.
