Ever wonder how pure maple syrup is produced? Discover through hands-on demonstrations and crafts as you tap into the fun of Maple Sugaring Weekends.
The journey begins with a wagon ride into the maple woods to the Woodland Center. There, you can take part in the maple sugaring process. Kids learn how to tap a tree with hands-on guidance from Farmpark staff. The whole family gets involved collecting sap contained in collection buckets hung on the maple trees. Move indoors to watch the water-like substance you helped collect boiled and processed into pure maple syrup and other naturally-sweet products.
