Pixie Woods Children's Park


About Pixie Woods

Founded on the core value that reflects an unwavering commitment to the Stockton community, the Pixie Woods Children's Park first opened its door in 1954 through the generous support of the City of Stockton, local businesses and organizations, and numerous Stockton citizens. Over the past sixty years, over one million visitors from near and far have come and experienced the beauty and magic that this enchanted fairyland holds. Today, Pixie Woods remains true to its tradition of being a wonderland for the "young in age and the young at heart".
