Children's Fairyland on Lake Merritt in Oakland, the first children's storybook park in the U.S., is celebrating its 65th birthday in mid-September. I remember going there with friends in 1956! We got a chance to be in the park after hours this week, amidst the colorful storybook sets, kid-sized rides and 10 acres of gardens. What a pleasure! Thanks for the opportunity, C.J. HIrschfield (Executive Director).
