2. Giggle Ridge Adventure Golf at Cultus Lake Adventure Park

Located in the Cultus Lake Adventure Park you’re sure to have a fun time at this 18-hole mini golf course through an imaginary world of Giggle Ridge. Make your way through a cartoon mountain lumber camp. Each hole has quirks and challenges and you get a chance to win a free game at the 18th hole! Small strollers are welcome and this activity is suitable for all ages.

Spend the rest of the day at Cultus Lake. Choose from 3 beaches and day use areas along Cultus Lake to spend your day. Main Beach, Entrance Bay and Maple Bay offer picnic tables, and docks to jump and swim off of. Don’t forget to also check out the Cultus Lake Waterpark and Adventure Park! Have lunch at Beethoven’s Pizza or Lakeside Beach Club, and cool off afterwards with ice cream from Frosty’s or shaved ice from Huis.

A 21km loop that follows the Vedder River in Chilliwack through wide gravel pathways. Stop along the way to enjoy a picnic at one of the picnic benches or along the river, enjoy an ice coffee from the Amble Coffee Truck located at Vedder Park or simply walk a smaller portion of it together!

4. Get lost in the Chilliwack Corn Maze (Open August – October)

The Chilliwack Corn Maze is a main family attraction in Chilliwack located off of the Yale Rd. exit when entering Chilliwack from Vancouver. Make your way through their challenging maze, experience and play
