The Sacramento Fairytale Town is a park and open-air museum for children. This fun-filled fantasyland spans over 2.5 acres and features attractions such as King Arthur’s Castle, Sherwood Forest, and the beanstalk of “Jack and the Beanstalk” fame. Visitors can prepare a picnic on any of the green lawns in the park or enjoy a snack at the Dish & Spoon Café.
Aside from giving children the opportunity to play with their favorite fairytale characters, the theme park is also open for birthdays, field trips, and other special events. The theme park can be rented or reserved for these special events. As soon as the park closes, it can be used as a site for family reunions and even weddings. Field trips to the park should be arranged at least 2 weeks in advance and there should be no less than 20 children attending. Birthday parties are usually arranged at King Arthur’s Castle.
This park also highlights learning while having fun. Children can learn the names of new plants by following the exotic plant alphabet, and live theatre performances are also held every year. Camp-outs at Humpty Dumpty’s house are another special event during the summer.
Fairytale Town has a special mission: to make the dreams of the children in Sacramento come true. The theme park and museum is owned by a non-profit organization which relies on the contributions of its guests. Sacramento locals have the chance to help out and have fun at the same time by signing up for an annual subscription. Each subscription member has free admission to the park for a whole year, plus a variety of other rewards such as discounts on birthday parties and Fairytale Town items.
The park is open daily from 9AM to 4PM during spring and summer, while it is only open Thursdays to Sundays from 10AM to 4PM during fall and winter. Sacramento Fairytale Town is located along Land Park Drive and is adjacent to the Sacramento Zoo.
