Safety During COVID-19


Holidays are for traditions and making memories, and this year that’s needed more than ever. We are grateful for the opportunity to give families something to look forward to, continuing our tradition of providing families a place to make memories to last a lifetime.

The face covering regulations enacted by Story County and the State of Iowa apply to Center Grove Orchard.

We want you to know what we are doing—and what we are asking of you—to keep our team members, guests and communities safe. Our efforts in addition to the face covering regulation include:

In addition to the above, we are taking these precautions for Brunch with Santa & Rudolph:

Further, we are asking you to please know that we are doing our best to follow the guidelines set up by the CDC as well as the Iowa Department of Public Health to ensure that all our guests have a safe and enjoyable experience. The risk of exposure to COVID-19 is higher when visiting any public place and, in choosing to visit, you assume that risk.

We will continue to monitor guidelines and make additions and adjustments to our policies and facilities to support the safety of our team members and guests.

Please note: Event tickets are non-refundable under normal circumstances. However, should we find it necessary to close for reasons of public health, full refunds will be offered for tickets purchased for those days.

You’ve been asking and here’s your answer!

Santa Claus is coming to town! 🎅🏼

Join us for Brunch with Santa each weekend until Christmas.  Tickets must be purchased online and include brunch 🍴, crafts and activities 🎨, a CGO Express train ride (weather permitting) 🚂, and of course...SANTA! 🎅🏼

Being safe is a gift we can all give each other this year, so Santa (masked) will be in the chair while children (masked) share their wishes with him from the straw bales behind the picket fence. Elves will help monitor the timing so that each child/family gets their best-that-2020-can-offer photo op 📷 with Santa. 

Tickets are limited for each time slot.

It was the laughter, the smiles, seeing your family hand in hand, the joy that was spread this season that fills us with so much gratitude. 
We at CGO are so grateful for our staff who came up with creative and adapting ideas then put more than 💯 effort into it. 
And you! Thank you! For your support, feedback and ideas so we can better provide the space for running, jumping, picking, laughing, playing and of course, eating! 
We hope the joy sustains you and your loved ones and you too feel the gratitude with memories that last a lifetime!
Happy Thanksgiving!
