Saunders Farm, Ottawa

3.5
#6 of 42 in Outdoors in Ottawa
Navigate through hedge mazes, douse yourself at the splash pad, or climb aboard a pirate ship at the family friendly Saunders Farm. The 40 hectare (100 acre) farm has 12 mazes to choose from, as well as hayrides, puppet shows, plays, fresh farm food, and landscaped gardens. Ride down a big slide, jump on giant pillow trampolines, go mining for gems, or tour the property on a pedal bike. The farm offers year-round entertainment, but specializes in fall and winter activities like haunted hayrides and shooting corn from an air cannon.

  • They really do have great activities for children for all seasons. Always a lot of fun for the little ones. Christmas - Halloween - Berry season.  more »
  • I used to love going to Saunders farm when I was younger, but now it's gotten incredibly expensive. I just don't think it should cost $40 (or whatever the price is now) to walk around a haunted house....  more »
  • Our first visit to the farm at night and we had a great time! Not recommended for children under 10 but our 7 and 9 year old had a blast! The rainy weather and muddy paths added to the experience for ...  more »

  • Definitely more to do for kids during the day activities. but the mazes were awesome and the witches house was very cool and the haunted house was very very well put on. The staff is super friendly you can tell they really love what they are doing 🎃 loved the Halloween feel of the whole place, would definitely come back with kids next time
  • We have been going to Saunders Farm for years and have never been disappointed. Yesterday afternoon's visit was no exception. With the beautiful weather, the place was packed but our waits were never longer than was reasonable. The wagon wide was exhilarating, the kids' barn was delightful and the accessibility of food and washrooms was astounding considering the numbers. Unfortunately we missed the stage show, but I hear the the songs this year are great. If the nice weather holds, we may go back so we can spend more time in the mazes. Congratulations on another great year!
  • I bought 4 tickets to the Fright Fest at Saunders Farm back in April through a promotion. I received an email at the beginning of October explaining that this year we have to reserve the evening we want to redeem our tickets on in order to limit the number of people that are allowed in so that everyone gets the chance to enjoy the attractions. I reserved our tickets for this evening and we showed up at 8pm to find a 30 minute line up for those in the same situation as us. By the time I got to the window, the lady told me that it would be a 2 to 2.5 hour wait to get on the Haunted Hayride, so I asked for a refund. They couldn't refund my purchase because I bought my tickets online. I turned around with 4 tickets in my hand and had to sell them to other people in line. Saunders Farm should be investigated for the actually service they provide. They knowingly sell tickets over capacity. Most patrons will likely go on 1 or less rides. This year's tickets are selling at 40$ but I have to question the value and so should every other patron that ever considers going to this place. It is honestly appalling that they can do this with no remorse and no consequence. How can they have a no refund policy when they are unable to provide the service that we are paying for? Walking out it occurred to us that the hundreds of people in line have no idea what is awaiting them on the other side of the ticket booth and that their hard earned money will soon be flushed down the toilet thanks to Saunders Farm.
  • Best farm in the world. It may be a bit expensive but it is worth every penny. Spent 5 hours there with kids between the ages of 2 and 10 and we all loved it. Pack a lunch and give yourself lots of time to explore and enjoy. Well kept, updated regularly and clean, friendly staff.
  • This is a fantastic place to bring energetic kids on the weekend. Beautiful landscaping and great catering as well. The giant bouncy pillows are awesome!
