Story Book Land

Story Book Land is a beautiful, free, park full of life sized figures and sculptures, Nursery rhymes, and childrens story book characters. There is a new section dedicated to Oz, as the author was an Aberdonian. Ride the train around the park. Ride the carousel. Snack stands open during summer months. Nice RV campground right outside the entrance with lots of playground equipment. Storybook Land is located at Wylie Park which has a water park, lake and lots of picnic and play areas. I have visited there four times in the last ten years.
