Children's Wonderland is a cute, clean, huge (but gated!) park in Vallejo. Enter through the guarded gates to find green grassy hills with little themed playgrounds situated on the outskirts – dig for dinosaur bones, ride atop a firetruck, sit in Cinderella's carriage, spin a tea pot, or row a boat. Let your imagination run wild.
The park is big, so don't expect to sit down one place and watch your kids – you'll likely be running around with them. Bring hats, it's hot in Vallejo. There are a few large trees with shade, but many of the benches are not shaded. There's also picnic tables and restrooms – themed Queens and Kings appropriately.
