It’s springtime, and Children’s Fairyland is reopening!
Early this morning, families bundled up in warm clothes braved the morning foggy and wet weather to visit the park for the first time since it closed on December 6 because of the pandemic. The park is now open Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m to 12 p.m and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The hour closure in between allows staff to perform a deep cleaning. Masks are mandatory for visitors and there are hand sanitizing stations throughout the park. The gift shop allows for one social bubble inside at a time.
Kymberly Miller, executive director of the park, told The Oaklandside that the park is fully staffed and doing better financially than it was last year.
Fairyland is able to reopen thanks to the March 9 Alameda County Public Health Department announcement that the county is now in the “red tier,” which means certain indoor and outdoor activities like museums, zoos, aquariums, and theme parks are allowed to resume at 25% capacity.
