After purchasing your wrist bands for Kayben Farm’s Sunshine Adventure Park, you enter around the corner through the outdoor cafe.
They have a large covered picnic area where you can eat – it also has some swings and steering wheels.
They have a number of small play features outside. Including a sandbox, duck races (where you use a water pump to race the ducks down the tube – super popular), and trikes.
Wheat Wonderland (you can see the entrance in the above photo on the left) is full of wheat that the kids can dig and play in.
The favorite attraction for both of my kids was the Berry Bounce. It is a giant inflated bouncer that resembles half of an oval shaped ball. (It’s really big, there is a red yellow and blue section).
Gordie at 4 was able to run all around it independently after a short while of getting used to it. Nicky needed a lot of support but loved it too.
Most of the time the bouncer was covered in children.
The climber and slide are really tall. These photos do not do it justice.
To one side of the climber you will find these pedal carts that you can drive around a little track. These were also really popular. Gordie desperately wanted to ride them but as a small 4 year old was just way to short.
To get to the animals and mazes you walk past this area through a path between the trees. (Where the little white sign is below).
There’s quite a few farm animals you can see and you can buy some food for them if you’d like to try feeding them. You stay outside of the fences to view the animals.
There have a rye maze, corn maze and a tree maze as well as some nature paths. We took a look at the rye maze before we headed home.
Some of the rye had been trampled so it was sometimes difficult to tell where the path really was, but Gordie loved the idea of running through a maze.
We had a lot of fun at Kayben Farms and I would happily go back again. If I lived in the South end of the city I might even consider getting passes.
