Hog Bay Park
Bermuda, Sandys Parish

Hog Bay is the third largest (38 acres) public park in Bermuda. The western part borders on the ocean, the eastern one on the Middle Road, in the south - on the territory of Woodlawn Road (Woodlawn Road).
The park is named after Hog Bay (now its name is Pilchard Bay), which, in turn, received the name from the wild boars that were found here, crashed by sailors in 1609. It was assumed that these boars were descendants of a brood specially left here by Spanish sailors intended to be food for survivors of the wreck of sailors. At that time, the land was used for growing tobacco for export, which at that time was one of the priority activities in Bermuda. Throughout the 18th-20th centuries, agriculture and livestock farming flourished here.
Several famous Bermuda families own some of these lands since the XVII century. The territory that has passed to the government is carefully guarded, preserving its original appearance, under the watchful eye are also buildings and monuments that undoubtedly have archaeological, historical and aesthetic value. Visitors to Hog Bay Park have a great opportunity to watch birds. Climbing the picturesque Sugarloaf Hill with close observation, you can find more than 120 species of birds, including tropical Orioles, purple finches, and borefoot hawks.
