Hay Tunnel

Located at the check out area – children enjoy crawling through the hay.  Its a little dark and spooky – so better for the older child.

Picnic Area

Bring along your own picnic and enjoy one of our various picnic areas. Tables are limited so bring along a blanket.

Dykeview Walk

Bring a pair of walking shoes and explore the dykeland along the Cornwallis River. Watch some of the highest tides from along the front of the farm. Wander down to the old grave yard which was used by the early French settlers.  Make your way to the Planters monument and read about the Acadian Settlers. We would be happy to point the way.

Make your own fun

Bring along a football or soccer ball or have a game of catch. If you have enough people- make a pyramid on the front lawn.
