Maplewood Farm located on the eastern edge of North Vancouver is a rarity along the North Shore. With suburbanization spreading across the lower regions with the construction of the Lion's Gate Bridge, the rate of house building increased and the arable land went to new development. The farms along the North Shore were slowly disappearing, Maplewood, the last, was acquired by the District of North Vancouver in 1970 and now operates as an educational and exciting experience for visitors to the region.
Originally the Farm was a five acre dairy farm owned by Mr. Akiua Kogo; today it houses dozens of animals such as chickens, cows, horses, rabbits, sheep, goats, donkeys and even pigs which call the farm home.
Offering dozens of pens as well as petting areas, Maplewood Farm is a fun experience for adults and children. Spring offers a different side to the Farm, many new baby animals arrive - rabbits, chicks, goat kids and others are found throughout the Farm, visitors can also walk around the large pond found on site to view the ducklings.
The farm offers special events throughout the year such as Easter, Earth day, Canada day and a variety of others. People of all ages can appreciate the interesting animals found throughout the Farm, a remnant of North Vancouver's past.
