The days are getting shorter, back to school is in the air and you are just starting to switch from the idea of hot & sunny beaches to cool sunshine, apple picking, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes. Fall is a great time to be out with the family and we have 5 amazing family-friendly corn mazes for you all near Metro Vancouver!
Where: 41905 Yale Road West, Chilliwack
When: August - October 31st, 2023
Highlights: This year’s maze design is a celebration of the relationships and memories that have been made on the farm and in the community over the last 25 years. The design itself is simple. A barn sits in a field surrounded by corn and pumpkins with the sun radiating in the background. Leading to the front door of the barn is a winding road. For the team at Greendale Acres this is the road back home. They have all spent time living away from the farm but they have always been brought back. That is their hope for their guests. No matter where you go or how busy life becomes you will always have a family farm to call home.
