Greendale Acres Farm

Formerly known as the Chilliwack Corn Maze and Pumpkin Farm, Greendale Acres is a farm and tourist attraction in the Fraser Valley.

Greendale Acres is a farm, but also a popular place for children and their families. It’s open at specific times of the year with kid-friendly activities and attractions to explore. The venue hosts various events over the course of the year, including Sweet Spring between mid-April and mid-May. The farm is also available for private rentals.

Sweet Spring at Greendale Acres



In 2023 Greendale Acres is the place to find family-friendly activities at their Sweet Spring event which takes place on Thursdays to Sundays between April 14th and May 20th in 2023. During that time the farm is a popular place to admire spring flowers and for children and their families to enjoy various fun activities. (Note: The event was going to run until May 14th, but then got extended for an additional week.)

Greendale Acres Farm and Attraction in Chilliwack

Up until just a few years ago, Greendale Acres was called the Chilliwack Corn Maze and Pumpkin Farm. The corn maze and pumpkin patch are still featured attractions at the farm, but there is plenty more on offer as well. The new name makes more sense seeing that the farm is open at various times of the year, not just in late summer and autumn.

There are different events at the farm in the spring, summer and fall. There are also attractions to enjoy like farm animals, tractor rides and designated playground areas.

In 2023 the farm attraction is open to the public on a number of days in the spring between the end of March and middle of May. It opens back up in August for its corn maze season that then runs until the end of October.

Location, Hours and Rates

Greendale Acres is located at 41905 Yale Road West in Chilliwack. It’s pretty much directly across the street from the Chilliwack Golf Club.

Below is information about the venue’s hours, operating season and admission rates. (Note: Exact details are subject to change.)

The farm doesn’t open up for the season until Easter (which takes place in either March or April). Beginning in April or May it starts operating on a regular weekly schedule. During its Sweet Spring season, the place is open from mid-April until Mid-May on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. After that, in 2023 the place is closed until August.

The farm is open daily for its Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch from sometime in August until the end of October. Hours of operation during this season are typically from 2:00 to 9:00 pm on weekdays, 9:00 am to 9:00 pm on Saturdays, and 9:00 am to 6:00 pm on Sundays. Exact details for 2023, however, are to be confirmed.

The admission cost remains fairly steady for most of the year. Expect to pay around $15 for everyone between the ages of 3 and 74.

Season passes are also available. They provide unlimited admission for an entire calendar year. A season pass costs $40 for adults and $35 for seniors and children. Season passes are a really good deal, especially if you live in the Fraser Valley region.

Dogs are also welcome at the farm, so long as they are well behaved and always on a leash.

What to Expect at the Farm

There are a number of family-friendly attractions and activities at Greendale Acres. One of the favourites for children is the giant jumping pillow which works like a trampoline. On top of that there’s the chance to go around a track on pedal carts, tackle a ropes course and tire mountain, and play some tetherball.

Also at the farm there are animals to see including chickens, goats and turkeys. Some of the farm animals are outside and others are indoors. There is also an indoor hay bale maze and various rustic, country-style midway games. Greendale Acres also offers tractor rides that go out into the fields sometimes, and when it’s blooming season there are a couple of smaller fields full of beautiful flowers to enjoy.

In the summer and early autumn, the farm sells freshly-grown corn. When open to the public for family-friendly activities, there’s a concession stand with snacks and drinks including pizza, hot dogs and ice cream. Greendale Acres is a very interesting place with lots to see and do!

Animals you’ll likely find at the farm include pigs, rabbits, goats, chickens and sheep. You might also see an alpaca and a turkey.

Various events that take place at Greendale Acres. Below is information about some of the biggest ones.


Chilliwack Plowing Match

A Chilliwack tradition, the 2023 Plowing Match on April 1st was the 101st edition of the annual affair. At the event a number of local farmers bring their equipment and see who can plow the most field in a short amount of time.

The day begins with a pancake breakfast at Greendale Acres and there are designated spectator areas to take in the competition. There’s also live music. Tickets to the event cost $10 and include access to the rest of the farm. The pancake breakfast is by donation with proceeds benefiting a local charity.

Corn Maze

Probably the biggest attraction at the farm each year is its corn maze which is one of the best in the province. It covers up to about 12 acres and over half of the entire Greendale Acres property! The maze usually opens in mid to late August and runs until the end of October. Exact dates for 2023 are to be confirmed as of the spring.

To learn more about the corn maze see our article about the Chilliwack Corn Maze.


Fireside Music Series

Each Sunday in September last year there was the Fireside Music Series which featured local artists performing evening shows by warm fires. This was a 19+ event and admission included a reserved fire pit that seated four people.

Last year each party of up to four friends also received a small cheese board, a bottle of wine, a couple bags of kettle corn and a s’mores pack with marshmallows to roast over the fire. 2023 details are to be confirmed.


Pumpkin Patch

Greendale is home to one of the many Pumpkin Patches in the Lower Mainland. Usually open from the end of September until Halloween, you can explore over a dozen different varieties of pumpkins grown on the farm. There are plenty that aren’t your typical orange Jack-o-lantern-style gourds!

The exact dates for the 2023 season are to be confirmed. To learn about Greendale Acres in the fall, see our article about the Chilliwack Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch.
