Never Never Land (Point Defiance Park, Trip 3)

On our third trip to Point Defiance Park we never made it to the main attraction, the zoo. We have been trying to get to see Never Never Land, which is one of the attractions in the park around the Zoo. The last time we went to the zoo, Never Never Land was suppose to open in about a week. Thus, we went back again about a month and half later and took a lot of pictures and video.

Never Never Land is a very unusual, but most definitely neat, park. There are some benches where you can have a picnic, and a playground where kids can play. But the best part about it is the fairyland houses. Along a walking path there are a whole series of little houses and buildings made up to look like they were taken out of different fairy tales and nursery rhymes. We found a large beanstalk rising into the sky, a brick house where the wolf huffed and puffed and so on. I wish that I could just keep wandering around it forever.

The one problem is that the park is not well kept up. The houses need cleaning and painting. One of the other people going through the park that we talked to said that originally there was a lot more detail, including the text of the associated tale and fiberglass figurines (such as a wolf). If the park was not so far away I would volunteer to go through it and help to bring it back to its former glory. This link describes what happened.
