Zu dritt mit Freunden an einem Wochentag spazieren gewesen. Entspannte Atmosphäre; die Wege sind gut gekennzeichnet. more »Three have been walking with friends on a weekday. Relaxed atmosphere; The paths are well marked.
Bartlett holds excellent concerts from 5 to 7 every Sunday during the summer. I went for a Motown concert which was excellent in all respects including the lawn dancing. During the week the Arboretum is free and open to the public. Very quite and contemplative. There is plenty of parking during the week though may be full during the concerts. A food truck is available during the concerts serving hot dogs, grilled cheese, hamburgers and fries. Highly recommended!
Great place in northern Stamford for getting in touch with nature. Beautifully maintained grounds with a wonderful herb garden and greenhouse. Terrific place to walk a dog, see a concert or have a family picnic.
