Oakland, California boasts the oldest storybook park in the country. Fairyland is 55 years old. I used to go when I was little. Does anyone else remember Popo the clown? Fairyland has had a hard time the couple of decades. It is being refurbished, and I hope to see it change to reflect the diversity of Oakland. It's a wonderful place to take your children.
The bubble blowing elf on the mushroom at top has weather the years pretty well. The owl and his boat have not.
