Maplewood Farm in North Vancouver is a must-see attraction for kids of all ages. Maplewood Farm is the last remaining farm on the North Shore, home to over 200 animals and birds. There are goats, rabbits, cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, ducks, donkeys and ponies. Bring your lunch along as there are a number of picnic areas, including a large covered picnic shelter where you can rest and have something to eat.
Kids will love getting up close and personal with the goats in the petting area. You can feed the ducks and the rabbits, so don’t forget to bring some bunny food along. No need to bring duck food though, as special food can be purchased at the entrance with your admission tickets.
There is a small gift shop located in the main entrance area with all kinds of farm related merchandise. You can also rent little ride on tractors which are quite fun.
After some fun at the farm you may want to stop by the newly renovated playground located just outside the farm grounds. It’s the perfect spot to burn off any remaining steam the kids may have.
