Rotary Storyland and Playland
Rotary Storyland & Playland exist to create memories through exceptional service, affordable entertainment and education for the children and families of Central California.Rotary Playland is a family amusement park with rides and attractions including the Willis B. Kyle Express Train, a roller coaster and a small indoor arcade. Rotary Storyland is a walk-thru park of fairytales and nursery rhymes with exhibits including King Arthur’s Castle, a pirate ship and the three bears house. Lastly, Splash Junction (Rotary Playland’s FREE Splash Park) will be open each day the parks are open for children and families to cool off at the park for no charge. Splash Junction is a 3500 square foot pad with over 30 water features.
Storyland is basically just a cute little playground to take your small children to. You can really tell this place was built long before modern playground safety regulations took effect, judging by the merry-go-round, wooden and metal slides, metal sprung teeter-totter, etc. It all has this very old-timey charm. I probably wouldn't recommend it to children over the age of 7, it wouldn't be particularly exciting for them, seeing as it's basically a massive playhouse for children to play pretend in.
I love Playland! That old dragon rollercoaster was/is my fav! Write to our city councilmen/women and tell them to bring back Rotary Playland! My kids would love that!
My kids loved this place. We were the only family there for a while (cold day) and the 3 characters roaming the park practically babysat my three children for a few hours. My kids were in heaven sword-fighting a pirate on his ship. Looking for granny with red-riding hood, and rolling down the hill with sleeping beauty. Well-maintained. Very similar to Fairyland in Oakland, but so much more well-maintained and clean.
Great place to take little ones, but be prepared, it is so hot!
Very fun, and magical place for little ones, six and under. Kept my grand child busy for hours, the train ride caps off the visit.
