Saunders Farm, Ottawa

3.4
#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.

  • We booked some time at Saunders farm for a club wide end of year party. The Pavilion building was spacious and clean. The food and drink service was well executed. We took advantage of their outdoor stage and bench seating for awards presentations - a sound system was provided. Seating was limited to the sides of seating area with about 75% protected from the afternoon sun. The splash pad, bounce pad, pedal carts and mazes were available for use. They also have an open field area that we took advantage of for outdoor volleyball on the grass field that was cut to an acceptable length for most outdoor sport activities. It was a very casual environment for a very open and active outdoor end of year party. We had great weather, albeit a little hot for the outdoor activities. From all accounts, it looked like everyone enjoyed their time.
  • A great place, with huge mazes to explore and plenty of activities for all ages. It is a must-see for anyone visiting the Ottawa area, AND the staff are so kind and helpful. The fall haunting season is also absolutely amazing. Food is great too. Would reccommend for sure.
  • I've always loved Saunders Farm and I'm always excited to go in the fall to get into the Halloween spirit, but 2016 was the least fun experience for me at Saunders Farm. The crowds are getting bigger and the lines are getting longer. I found it much better when the rule was you could only go on everything once because at least you got to go on everything! This last year, I paid $30 or more only to go through one attraction. I was also upset about portable toilets running out of toilet paper, soap, and paper towel!
  • Was a fun place to take the kids! A variety of mazes, splash park, cool tree house and more!
  • This place is a family tradition! I am always so EXCITED to go once a year, and luckily i got the opportunity to come 3 times! The actors/monsters are amazing! And they are all so nice! I wish it could be open all year but then i mean what would kinda ruin the mystery it has
