Hog Bay Park

Duration: 90 minutes (not including transport)
Ages: P5+

The fields planted with produce throughout this park show that farming still plays an important role on this property. Two old lime kilns are signposted near the entrance. Lime kilns were used to produce the “wash” for our famous white roofs. With 38 acres of steep trails, woods and a rambling coastal path, this walk can be a good workout if you are looking to burn off some of your students’ extra energy!
