Join Us for this All-Ages Autumn Activity!
How many squash and pumpkins do you think you can spot at Bloedel Reserve? If you’re visiting in October, the answer is hundreds. Every spring, our Horticultural team plants beds of squash and pumpkins specifically so that they can create the colorful, seasonal displays you will see around the grounds.
When you arrive at the grounds, pick up a Super Squash Scavenger Hunt map at the start of the trail. Or use the link below to download a map before you come. This map highlights where to find the various squash and pumpkins and gives you questions to answer about what you see. (Please bring a pen or pencil with you to write down your answers.) On the back of the map, you’ll find photos and much more information about this diverse family of vegetables.

Located in a semi-rural residential area, our parking capacity is limited and there is no street or off-site parking available. During busy seasonal events and the summer, we encourage the use of BI Ride, carpooling, or other ride-sharing services. If we reach our parking capacity, we may ask you to return at a later time or another day. We appreciate your understanding.
