There are few places in the world like this little magical corner of Sacramento’s Land Park. Favorite fairytales and nursery rhymes are the backdrop for more than 25 colorful playsets, all designed to inspire creativity and literacy in young children. Nigerian Dwarf goats, Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs, a miniature Sicilian donkey, and a miniature Hereford cow are among the child-friendly creatures that you’ll find here. Located at various play sets around the park are storybook boxes. Insert your special key and you’ll hear a story and a song. The keys are available for purchase at the box office. The Dish & Spoon Café has snacks and drinks available at affordable prices. Throughout the year, both the Mother Goose Stage and the Children’s Theater are home to a variety of live performances in music, dance, puppetry, drama, storytelling, and more.
