A visit to the Port Kells Pumpkin Patch, at Port Kells Nursery, is a tradition for many Metro Vancouver families. The Port Kells pumpkin patch is positively brimming with orange gourds ready to be transformed into pumpkin pie and jack o’lanterns.

Port Kells NurseryAdmission to the Port Kells Pumpkin Patch is free. Kids will have great fun at the outdoor play areas and in the cedar maze. I know one of my kids’ favourite activities at Port Kells Nursery is feeding the chickens. The animal attractions – the goat palace, the pig hut, and the chicken coop – are all open for the 2021 Halloween season. And you might want to pack a change of clothes as you can guarantee the indoor sandpit will be a hit with the littles. When my kids were small a visit to the sandpit generally meant half the sand was coming home in our car.

Port Kells NurseryIf you haven’t been to Port Kells Nursery, I highly recommend it. I visit a number of times a year. They have a HUGE selection of plants – both annual and perennial – as well as beautifully filled planter baskets, trees, indoor plants, water plants, and much more. Many of the plants for our family’s first vegetable garden were purchased from Port Kells this year. A visit to Port Kells Nursery offers something for everyone in the family. The parents will enjoy browsing the plants and decor items, and the kids will love exploring the cedar maze, saying hello to the animals, and picking the perfect pumpkin from the pumpkin patch.
