FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!
So much to do for the whole family!
UPDATE: Family activities will still operate this year but many new protocols are in place to ensure you and your family stay safe while visiting our Orchard. Learn more here >

Children and adults will love racing ducks against one another at the duck race located inside the Family Activity Area. Here you will find 10 hand water pumps used to race your duck from one water tank to another. You might want to bring an extra shirt or towel just in case your fun results in some large splashes!
At Cannamore Orchard we have mazes inside the Family Activity Area as well as larger, green mazes, in the field.
Inside the Family Activity Area we have the rainbow maze, and patio stone mazes. For most of these mazes you need to think your way through, finding the exit by planning your route. These mazes are all life size and you walk on or through them to get from start to finish.
The 7 finger board mazes are ideal for smaller ones. These finger board mazes are themed on the orchard or the Spooky Wagon Ride™. Using a finger, you trace your path on the grooved board from start to finish.
We have also planted 4 green labyrinths and mazes. We have 2 mazes and 1 labyrinth growing from cedar trees, and 1 maze using spruce trees. For a more relaxing turn, our contemplative flower labyrinth allows for a slower pace.
While at Cannamore Orchard for family activity weekends, enjoy a ride in our cow train or on our wagon.
The cow train, which includes 15 unique cow shaped barrels, will take you through the orchard and back to the maze field.
The wagon ride will take you to the strawberry and pumpkin field, into the maze field and through the orchard.
Bring the family to the pedal car track! Here, you can challenge each other to see how many laps you can pedal around the circuit in our unique pedal cars.
Pedal cars are like go-karts but without a motor. There are pedal cars for adults as well as little ones. It is not nearly as easy as you think, but it’s lots of fun!
