View the Fairy/Gnome Trails
  • Please note that the fairy/gnome trails are dependent upon community participation for the creation and placement of homes.

Make a Fairy/Gnome Home for the Trails
  • We encourage the community to get in touch with nature and make fairy/gnome homes to be included in the trails!
  • Fairy/Gnome homes may be made in the comfort of your own home - just set out your home on July 7th along the designated trail to be included! Please see below for important details.
  • Important Dates
  • July 7th: Place your home along the designated trail.
  • July 8th - 13th: View homes along the trails.
  • July 14th/15th: Help clean up by removing your fairy/gnome home from the trail.
  • Guidelines for creating fairy/gnome homes.
  • Homes must be family friendly. (No sales, political, vulgar, or offensive content allowed.)
  • Project size should be no more than a 12"x12" floor space and follow the theme of the park.
  • Ensure that materials are appropriate for outdoor weather, such as rain.
  • Home creators are encouraged to use natural materials and recyclables.
  • Avoid using food products that may attract wildlife.
