Bose Corn Maze closed this seeason

Rainstorm flattened half of Cloverdale maze forcing shut down

It’s disappointing news for anyone planning to get lost in the Bose Corn Maze in Cloverdale this season – and for the family that operates it each summer.

The recent rainstorm flattened more than half the maze, leaving the Bose family with no alternative but to close the attraction two weeks early last week.

The maze website at www.bosecornmaze.com includes an announcement that reads in part: “It is too much to try to clean up as the destroyed part of the maze goes right through the middle. Please think of us next year. And thank you to everyone who came this year.”

The sprawling maze – one of the largest in the region – opened Aug. 24 and was slated to wrap up its 14th season on Thanksgiving, in preparation for the harvest.

The pumpkin patch, south of 64 Avenue on 156 Street, remains open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and Thanksgiving.
