  • Well maintained, fun for the whole family. Beautiful trails, dog friendly. Don't miss out on some of the special events that go on, especially in the summer. Free for all CT residents with plenty of parking. Lots of places to set up a day camp and swim and BBQ if that's your thing, or head out on the miles and miles of fantastic trails.
  • We had a wonderful day there! Picnic and practice for the wedding of our son and his fiancée. Beautiful weather. The bathrooms are new and clean. We haven't been there in years and it was a pleasant surprise. Definitely going back!
