Corn Maze to Permanently Close After This Weekend
Hermantown MN…… The Engwalls Corn Maze will be permanently closing after this weekend. The popular corn maze, located just 10 minutes from downtown Duluth has been open for nine years and has been an annual fall tradition for many area families since opening. In addition to providing a fun activity Engwalls and Lundeen Productions, corn maze operators, have donated over $30,000 to local charities. “We felt from the very start that giving back had to be a part of what we were doing” said corn maze partners Rod Saline of Engwall Florist, Greenhouses and Garden Center and Tracy Lundeen of Lundeen Productions. “$1 from every regularly priced admission fee has been donated since we opened.” Organizations such has Animal Allies, the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, Boys and Girls Club, Bluebird Foundation and many others have benefitted from the donations.
The maze is closing due to tremendous growth in Hermantown, particularly the Hermantown Marketplace area (near Sams Club). Because of the exciting planned growth the need for sewer capacity to accommodate construction has become a pressing need. A new major Sewer Trunk Line will be constructed that will traverse the Engwall Corn Maze property. Construction is expected to begin by mid-2019 which will connect the Maple Grove Road/Haines Road area to Hermantown Road and Okerstom Road.
