Great place thats within a short drive from our house. Well kept and maintained facilities. All the animals looked healthy and well cared for. Our three kids (6 and 3 years of age) loved it and i had ... read more »
Seems like they take good care of their animals. Was very clean compared to other petting zoos. I loved the set up. My 2 year old son had a really great time and so did my 12 year old niece.
What an amazing place! Lots to see and do for little kids. Mine just loved it, especially the fact that they could touch most of the animals. The baby goats were a win. So worth the price!
Very quaint, small but decently sized farm. As an adult it only takes about 20 minutes to see everything. But with a child, there is plenty to do. From the ducks being able to roam everywhere, and birdseed to purchase, to being inside the goat and rabbit pen. Also beware of the hens and rosters, they closed in on us as we were having our picnic lunch. The cost to go in is an amazing price. And free parking.
Fun place to bring kids. There are nice facilities for birthdays. Admission price is very reasonable. They have a nice goat petting area and small horses kids can ride.
Kids loved spending time with rabbits, goats and ducks. Cow milking was a new thing to watch live. Overall - A great experience.
Great place to bring your toddler. Pros: - it's relatively clean (for a farm) - perfect size for toddlers, it's big enough to run around and have fun but not so big that walking through it seems like a chore - plenty of animal exhibits for them to look at - nice lake with a bridge (and plenty of ducks in the lake) - cheap, with plenty of parking nearby - lots of trees, so even on hot sunny days it's comfortable Cons: - none really I'll definitely come back.
My family had a few hours left to spare on a warm Wednesday afternoon. My mom opened her map and saw "Maplewood Farm" - it sounded interesting, so I did a search on Yelp and read some great reviews. So we hoped into our car and headed for Maplewood Farm. Going to the farm was definitely a highlight of my trip to Vancouver. We got there around 1:30 PM (the farm closes at 4), and still had plenty of time to wander around. Only my sister and I went into the farm (it was $7.25 for adult admission and $4.50 for child admission). If you check into Maplewood Farm on Yelp, you get a free bag of birdseed! My sister and I both checked in and got two big bags of birdseed (which sells for $3/bag). The farm itself isn't too big. There are horses, cows, miniature donkeys, pigs, goats, sheep, a new baby calf, bunnies, birds, peacocks, roosters, guinea pigs, and lots and lots of ducks! If you love animals (especially interacting with them), you'll love Maplewood Farm. There was only a few other families besides my sister and me, so we basically had the farm to ourselves. We pet the bunnies, took pictures with the cows and horses, talked to the miniature donkeys, had the goats rub their heads against our legs, fed the ducks by the small pond ... it was incredibly fun. The animals are well taken care of and there are name plaques by their station. While we walked through the farm, we saw the farmhands and helpers working with the animals. When my sister and I were looking at the cows, one of the farm workers walked behind us and told us that we were taking a picture of Sofie and I could tell by the way her head quickly snapped up that she recognized her. The best part was feeding the ducks! I noticed there was another bigger pond towards the back of the farm (where you cross a small bridge to get to it) and I was blown away by the breathtaking view of the pond. A great date spot if you ever want a romantic view and somewhere to just talk! We fed the ducks and took lots of pictures. And because we stayed until closing time, we had the privilege of seeing the animals be led back into their stables/homes and fed their dinner. Some picnic benches if you want to eat, and I know they have yearly passes where you can drop by and visit the animals from time to time as well. A small playground on the outside of the farm. Lots of sinks and hand sanitizing stations, and even a shoe cleaner near the entrance of the farm! tl;dr if you love animals, you have to check out Maplewood Farm! A great place for children and even adults! Well worth the money. Check in on Yelp for a free bag of birdseed!
