Have fun at Lee Farms’ pumpkin patch

October is the month for pumpkin fun – pies, decorations, and Jack-o-Lanterns – and we want you to know about the perfect place to get yours: Lee Farms.

Until the end of this month Lee Farms is running a patch in which you can find pumpkins of all colors and sizes, and also enjoy activities like a corn maze, hayrides, inflatable slides, pony rides, feed farm animals, and much more.

Lee Farms is located at 21975 SW 65th Avenue in Tualatin, 97062. This is about a half-hour drive from Sunnyside Village. Admission is free on weekdays, and $5 on the weekends. The admission includes a hayride, the corn maze, the petting zoo, and parking. Wristbands (ranging $15-$20) are sold for access to the play area and other activities. You will also want to stop by the Country Store, which will tempt you with seasonal decorations, apple cider, and much more.

There are only two weeks left of pumpkin fun at Lee Farms and you don’t want to miss it. Find all information about it here.

Clackamas hiking trails are fun for everyone who lives in the area. We have couple recommendations for you to try.

Clackamas River Trail Hike is a family friendly moderate hike, on an undulating trail. Some parts of this path are swampy, so bring the appropriate footwear; you will see ancient cedars and Douglas-firs.  This hiking trail is open to the public all year long but in winter may have snow.

Along the trail you will go through these areas:

  • Pup Creek Falls
  • The Narrows
  • Indian Henry Trailhead

Mount Talbert Nature Trails, some hikes are mostly covered by trees, wildflowers are abundant, the park has about 4.2 miles of hiking trails. You may find an area of extinct volcanoes, a lava dome, as well as facts about cultural and natural resources posted along the paths.  The park is open daily and free to the public, with over 200 acres of forest and streams. Although dogs and bikes are not allowed on these trails, it is a great moderate hike for the family or an outing with your close hiking buddy.

Get out this weekend for some fresh air and take a hike!

 

Get Ready for Labor Day Weekend!

Labor Day weekend is coming up, so it’s a time for many to get ready for relaxation and recharging during your much-needed break from work.

If you’re the outdoorsy type who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of noisy city life, there’s always the beautiful Mount Talbert Nature Park! Perched on top of extinct volcanoes, there are incredibly tall trees surrounding the four miles of trails. It’s also not uncommon to see deer, woodpeckers, and other wildlife during your trek in the woods. Take a rest in one of the many picnic areas for a bite! If you’re wanting to stay indoors instead, check out the Aquatic Park in North Clackamas. Completely indoors away from the elements, you can take the family for a swim! There’s surfing, swimming, slides, plus more!

From all of us here at Sunnyside Village apartments, we hope you have a very fun and safe holiday weekend!
