Maple Sugaring Weekends

At Lake Metroparks Farmpark

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. Farmpark’s very own pure maple syrup and other maple items are available for sale in both the Woodland Center and Gift Shop. Activities include: • Tap a maple tree by hand • See how maple candy is made • Whip up your own tasty treat with maple stirs (fee applies) • Learn how to make maple syrup in your own backyard • Sample maple syrup on silver dollar pancakes • Create a maple craft • Make ice cream and taste the results Regular Farmpark admission applies. Lake Metroparks Farmpark is located at 8800 Euclid Chardon Road in Kirtland. Visit for more information.
