Fairytale Town Debuts New Sherwood Forest Play Structure

Fairytale Town unveiled a new play structure in the Sherwood Forest area of the children’s storybook park on Saturday, Feb. 16.

With earth-tone colors and forest-themed elements, the structure was custom-designed to echo the entire Sherwood Forest play set. The structure features slides, crawl tubes, a talk tube, telescope and multiple climbing apparatuses, including steps shaped as tree trunks and bedrock, an inclined log and a vertical rock climbing wall. Wood chips surrounding the base of the play structure will make for soft landings during play time on the structure.

“Sherwood Forest has been a treasured part of Fairytale Town for more than 30 years,” said Kathy Fleming, executive director of Fairytale Town. “Hundreds of thousands of children will have fun pretending they are Robin Hood or Maid Marian as they crawl on Sherwood Forest’s new play structure.”

The Sherwood Forest area of the park also includes a balance beam, a maze of Boxwood and Spring Bouquet shrubs, decorative wood sculptures and a large fixed-seating area with dining tables used by guests and birthday parties.

The new play structure was made possible in part by former Sacramento city council member Rob Fong and proceeds from Fairytale Town’s Yellow Brick Road fundraising project.

“Play time at Fairytale Town is an essential part of childhood for those that grow up in the Sacramento region, and this new play structure will help ensure the park remains a vibrant destination for future generations,” said Rob Fong, former city council member.
