What if it rains?
We all know it seldom rains in North Vancouver. When it does Maplewood is open and Fun. We have umbrellas to lend and the pathways drain fairly well (wear boots anyway) and there is always the Greenhouse, Rabbitat, Livestock Barn and Picnic Shelter to hide out in. When it rains, the Goats can be found in Hill Paddock out behind the barn under a shed roof. Don’t forget, it’s dry inside the Gift Shop, too!
Come on in and enjoy farming in the rain!
How do I get to the farm?
Our map page shows our location, and lets you plan your trip via car, bus, or bicycle.
Parking is free, yup! that is what we said. If you want valet parking, please don’t ask Farmer Derek to park your car, unless you want your bumper removed! Remember we mentioned the farm has free parking, well it has but on busy days it can fill up quickly, because it’s free. Additional street parking is available just follow signage and don’t block driveways, this parking is also free.
Do you provide information for parents?
The Farm offers a unique field trip opportunity for all sorts of people who love animals and want to learn more about them. Thousands of people from Pre-Schools, Day Care Centres and Elementary Schools have found a trip to Maplewood Farm to be both fun and rewarding. Remember though that the Farm is also a working farm, complete with the miracle of new life and the potential hazards of large animals and working equipment.
In order to maintain the good health of you and your children, it is most important to be washing hands with soap and water frequently. The Farm provides excellent hand washing facilities. Monitor child behaviour and be sure hands are kept away from their faces and mouths.
Do you have pony rides?
Can you host birthday parties?
