Health & Safety at Oxbow

  • If you are experiencing COVID-19 like symptoms, please stay home!
  • Vaccinated Visitors: Masks are optional. You may want to continue wearing a mask if you’re at increased risk for severe infection, have an underlying health condition, or live with someone at increased risk. Parents are encouraged to model good masking behavior for their kids, who may be too young to be eligible for the vaccine and therefore are at risk for infection.
  • Non-Vaccinated Visitors: Masks are strongly encouraged, especially when inside any structure and when within 6 feet of other people.
  • Pack out any trash or waste.
  • Observe all posted signage indicating which areas are for visitors. If you come across an unmarked area, do not enter!
  • Do not enter or harvest from any of the farm fields, including the Kids’ Farm, unless invited to by Oxbow staff.
  • Be mindful that we have Honey Buckets for visitor bathroom use. We will have hand washing stations and hand sanitizer available.

Due to the impact of COVID-19 in Washington State and nationwide, changes to our current public schedule and other future events may occur. We are closely monitoring the situation and will post updates to our public hours and calendar of events here on our website and on our Facebook page. Unless we have announced special hours or open days, Oxbow is not open to the public; contact us via email if you have questions or need to reach a member of our staff. Thanks!


Directions

If you’re visiting Oxbow, please use our Public Entrance off of Hwy 203, just 1.4 miles south of the 124th St. roundabout. This entrance is used for events, Oxtober, school field trips, and summer camps, and as a general meeting place for most groups visiting Oxbow.

Oxbow’s address is 10819 Carnation-Duvall Rd NE. NOTE: Google maps may take you to the incorrect entrance. Please pay careful attention to signage. Look for a large “public entrance signWelcome to Oxbow” sign marking the new driveway. Other entrances used in past years will be CLOSED and may be difficult to back out of; please do not use any other entrances unless you’ve been specifically instructed to by Oxbow staff.

The map below shows a pin point marking the turning point for the Public Entrance.

  • Drive slowly (10 MPH) on all farm roads and watch for other guests.
  • Follow the signs directing you to the parking area.
  • Do not drive past the Farm Stand and into the Oxbow grounds unless you’ve been instructed to by Oxbow staff.

  • Dress for the weather: Bring a hat and wear layers. Sun protection and a water bottle are highly recommended.
  • Wear appropriate footwear. The fields and public areas have lots of lumps and bumps, so sturdy, closed-toe shoes or boots are recommended.

  • Mud happens! A spare towel or two to put down in your car for the ride home can’t hurt.
