Reopening with Covid-19 safety precautions in mind, Oakland’s beloved Fairyland is reopening to the public on Saturday, October 3. Expect a mini-size fantasy world straight out of 1950 with fairytale sets, farm animals and quirky exhibits from a bygone era. You might see the Brady Bunch family walking along one of the paths. This storybook theme park is best for children under age 8 located on the shore of Lake Merritt in Oakland.
Fairyland’s Covid-19 Changes & What’s Not Open
Puppet shows, storytime, live performances, and rides have been put on pause. So, it will feel different. But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of magic to be had inside the park. Dig out your magic key(s), slide down all the slides, play and read at the storybook sets. Say hello to the Fairyland farm animals.
There will be reduced capacity to allow for social distancing. Fairyland has created chalked circles all over the property so you and your “bubble” can create some distance to eat and rest comfortably. Look for brand new touchless faucets and hand sanitizing stations.
