I grew up in the country, but have lived in cities my whole adult life. My kids, on the other hand, are born and bred city kids. One time, we went to a corn maze and one of my children (who will remain nameless to protect the ridiculous) exclaimed, “I didn’t realize it was actually corn!” Sweet mercy. But whether your kids are country kids or city kids, we have a list of places your family can get outside and experience fun on the farm. And just maybe, learn something new.

Calgary Farmyard (Family Fun Calgary)

Calgary Farmyard (Formerly Calgary Corn Maze)

The Calgary Farmyard, formerly known as the Calgary Corn Maze and Fun Farm, is one of Alberta’s favourite destinations for agri-fun. Founded in 2008, it offers city kids fun-filled adventures on the farm from spring to fall, only a short drive away. There’s enough going on to keep the whole family interested, and perhaps more importantly, offers enough space for kids to burn some of their remarkable energy. The best formula for great family time is family + fun + tired, happy kids that fall into bed at night! Read more about it here.

No matter the day, no matter the farm, the most important part is spending time with your family. From getting lost in the corn mazes to gently petting the softest bunny, you’ll be enjoying the fresh air and making the most of the moments you have.
