Stockton's own fairyland for the "young in age and the young at heart," Pixie Woods, is located at 3121 Monte Diablo Avenue. 


Ride the Pixie Express Train down the tracks past Frontier Town.  Take an excursion down the lagoon on the Pixie Queen paddle-wheel boat, or, take an exciting ride on a vintage carousel.  The Pixie Woods map provides information about attractions in the park.

Pixie Woods began as a dream, and became a reality in 1954 through the generosity of many local businesses, organizations and individuals.  Over one million visitors from all 50 states and many other countries have journeyed through its rainbow gates.  Pixie Woods was created and is sustained by generous community donations.
