Storybook Gardens has been a family favourite for years. We took our own children, and now our grandchildren. The park has changed somewhat over the years, but improves each time. The splash pad and the climbing equipment at the far end are wonderful additions.

Hello, I do believe that there are wheelchairs available on arrival for those that may be in need of them. They are free to use within the park. There is also a water wheelchair that can be used in the splash pad.
