Vacay.ca Loves Vancouver For Urban Treats
Vacay.ca Outdoors Columnist Tricia Edgar discovered that wonderful restaurants and hotels are not the only things about Vancouver that foodies will enjoy. In her story entitled “Yummy taste of Vancouver’s urban farms,” Edgar discovered this city has some really interesting farm tours.
Edgar: Museums are amazing, but after a while, the urge to move around in the fresh air can cause the wiggles. If your kids have a serious case of the indoor blues, head over to Maplewood Farm, the North Shore’s own petting farm, where you can feed the bunnies, watch a milking demonstration.
Arrive before the 4 pm closing and you’ll see the “running of the goats” into the barn for the night. (Adult admission is $7.50; $4.50 for children older than 18 months.) Around Vancouver, explore one of the many riding stables and head out on a trail ride.
The North Shore Equestrian Centre offers rides for adults (starting at $46.58 for 45 minutes) and pre-booked Pony Play Dates for young children ($32.97 per child), giving you a horse’s-eye view of Vancouver’s rainforest. Out near the University of British Columbia, Southlands Farm is a unique agricultural area tucked into one of Vancouver’s most upscale neighbourhoods. Enjoy a pony ride, visit the farmer’s market, or take a walk through the nearby forest to visit with the area’s abundant wildlife. Those who are staying a little longer can even enjoy a farm camp in the city.
