Proceeds of the maze support the programs at Rio Grande Community Farm, a 501©3 non-profit urban farm dedicated to improve the health of our community through sustainable agriculture, fresh food, and education.
Why does it cost more at night?
We have a special interactive activity planned for our nighttime visitors. Each group will be sent on a mission to collect colors of light with a magic lantern that will help you traverse the maze in the dark on Friday & Saturday nights throughout October.
Can I schedule a group visit?
We have booked up all our group availability. Please visit us during our hours listed above.
How long does it take to go through the maze?
The maze generally takes 30-45 minutes to walk. You should expect your overall farm visit to be an hour or two.
What should I wear and bring with me?
The maze is in a field of dense broom corn which can be scratchy. It is recommended to wear pants and closed toe shoes when visiting the maze. Sunscreen, hats, and water are also advised.
Can I take a stroller into the maze?
We advise against strollers unless they are trail-worthy rugged types with big wheels.
Can my dog go through the maze?
Yes if he’s on a leash and is okay being in close proximity to a crowd of people on the narrow maze pathways. Please see Open Space signage at the front for all rules regarding dogs on the property.
What does wildlife have to do with the maze?
Everything! One of the main purposes of these fields are to provide food for migrating birds. In fact, 25% of the property is maintained for the benefit of wildlife.
Do you provide senior or military discounts?
Sure, just let us know at the ticket desk.
