Fairytale Island: Jewel of Brooklyn
Nestled among the bustle of New York City lies a little-known jewel known as Fairytale Island. Located in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, Fairytale Island welcomes visitors of all ages to explore its beauty and discover enchantment. The Island was originally part of a Lake that was drained and filled with a landfill in the late 19th century to create the wonderful park. It was given the name Fairytale Island in 1986, and since then, it has become a popular destination for families, couples, and tourists alike. Information can be found here.
Fairytale Island is a charming paradise overflowing with dreamy pathways and mesmerizing bridges. Colorful plants and deer dot the landscape, and a mysterious natural cave adorns the edge of the island. Everyone who visits Fairytale Island is sure to be spellbound as soon as they enter. The Island features a large pond at its center, which is home to many species of birds like ducks, cormorants, and egrets. In addition, your eyes will sparkle when you encounter the island’s numerous other wildlife residents. Locals joke that the Island’s wildlife is the “guardians” of the Island and that seeing them is a sign of good luck. In the center of the Island is the “Fairytale Castle,” a majestic structure standing on a large grassy knoll. You can explore it and its many winding paths to find secret surprises such as bronze statues of knights, a wishing well, and other enchanting details.
