Open House: Wednesday, Mar. 18 to Saturday, Mar. 21

10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Enjoy the beaut​y and wonder of nature as spring blossoms. Jack Smythe Field Centre offers an exceptional family experience with a visit to the Sugar Bush. Join in on an authenti​c Canadian tradition.​

For a number of years, the Peel Field Centres have invited the public for an awe-inspiring visit to our outstanding Sugar Bush during the March break. Individuals and families are invited to get involved as spring comes to life.  Help empty sap buckets, tap trees or sample some freshly made maple syrup as we celebrate the new syrup season.​ T​ake a hike along our tranquil trails and feed the friendly chickadees by hand.

Discover the importance of O​​ntario's first harvest and witness some of the many ways both sweet water and maple syrup are made in this region. Your visit would not be complete without a trip to the sugar shack where the sap will boil and clouds of sweet smelling steam will billow out of the chimney. Have a taste of the freshly made syrup: it's going to be swee​t!

The cost is $5.00/adu​lt and ​​$4.00/child 12 and under. ​

Lunch will be av​ailable for purchase. It will include: hot chocolate, cookies and hotdogs for you to roast over an open fire. Please note that all payments are "cash" only.
