7 Acres of History – The Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog
The American cranberry is synonymous with the holiday season. But how much do you know about how and where it grows?
As you stroll along our half mile walk and enjoy scenery, be sure to read up on the history and eco system. Bogs are low-lying areas where cranberries grow on vines.
The seven acres of bogs at The Nature Trail and Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog at Patriot Place are real, functioning bogs. In fact, they were originally planted in 1929 and have been cultivated by growers ever since!
The area around The Nature Trail includes a “cranberry wetland system.” This system includes a reservoir, upland, ditches, roadways, sand sources and seven acres of cranberry producing bogs.
