about Maple Grove Community Center:
More than 60 vendors sell a wide variety of fresh produce, flowers, nuts, jams, eggs, meat and dairy products, honey, baked goods, and more on Thursdays from mid-June through late October outside the center at the year-round Maple Grove Farmers Market (Thu 3pm-7pm). From November to May, the market moves indoors and takes place on only the first and third Thursday of each month (3pm-6pm). The market also offers live entertainment, special family programs, and children's activities.
Visit the website for cost, hours, and restriction information for each of the center's many attraction - for example, skate park admission is free, but helmets are required and kids under age nine must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Parties: Younger kids can celebrate Fri-Sun in a private party room with time in the aquatic center, playground maze, or ice arena.
