Visit to the Enchanted Forest

The Enchanted Forest is a magical place for children here in Salem Oregon. It is an amusement park and more with a fairy tale theme. Because of the Oregon weather, the park is only open from the end of March to the end of September. Closing day was this past Sunday and that is when we went.

I enjoyed Enchanted Forest as a child and now get to enjoy taking my kids. Some activities they loved and wanted to do over and over, others they were scared of, and many made their inquisitive minds want to explore.

Some of the exhibits are to look at, most are to interact with, and all are intriguing to young children. Above they are making a marionette dance and my daughter is noticing the "big bad wolf" from Little Red Riding Hood.

While we ate lunch we watched a water show with colorful lights and music. It is amazing how entertaining that is to a 2 year-old! It was a fun day and we can't wait until next year to do it again.


  1. What a wonderful day together! It's fun to take your kids where you enjoyed being as a child.
