Welcome to Fairytale Town, a remarkable 3.5-acre park located in William Land Park, Sacramento, CA. Fairytale Town is a whimsical haven of fun and exploration, where visitors of all ages can immerse themselves in the world of childhood imagination and classic fairytales. Visitors will be enchanted by the 26 charming playsets depicting classic nursery rhymes, and the beautiful wrought iron fence that surrounds the park.

Fairytale Town was founded in 1956 by the Friends of Fairytale Town, Inc., a 15-member board that worked diligently to raise funds to build the innovative “storybook” park. With a mission to “depict classics in children’s literature and [be] among the child’s first contacts with life and human relations,” the board raised approximately $82,000 in donations from civic organizations, businesses, and individuals. On August 29, 1959, Fairytale Town opened to the public, and since then has welcomed over 5 million visitors through Humpty Dumpty’s gates.
