Bowden is nestled between Edmonton and Calgary and is home to one of only two sunflower mazes in Canada. Mid-August is the best time to see the sunflowers. Last weekend when we were on a road trip, we decided to stop in. It was perfect timing, the sunflowers were 80% in bloom. Getting to frolic through a field of flowers really brought out my inner child.
Eagle Creek Farms is filled with A-Maze-ing mazes including sunflowers, corn, willow trees, and little patio mazes hidden in every corner. On their 100 year farm anniversary in 2021, they will be unveiling two new mazes; a lilac tree maze and a dogwood maze with a mix of fruit trees.
On the farm, everything gets composted from corn stalks and spoiled grain to vegetable scraps. This compost goes into supporting healthy gardens and mazes. You can find some of their fresh delicious vegetables for sale in their shop. If you are looking for bigger bags of fruits and vegetables to take home, they have a u-pick area. For a weekly supply of vegetables, they run a Community Supported Agriculture garden. To sign up for a share in their vegetable gardens check out their website in the spring.
The mazes can take from an hour to a couple of hours depending on how lost you get or how many Instagram photos you take. The pathways are made of dirt, hay, and corn stocks; typical farm things. Just be aware and plan your footwear accordingly. I wore slip on shoes that I didn’t mind getting a bit dirty because they are easy to wash.
To see more of the mazes watch my video below;
Typically the mazes are open from the beginning of July until the Mid- October
The Farm’s August hours are Monday to Sunday 11 am – 5 pm.
Admission varies from $6.50 to $9.00
