This is a wonderful area for hiking by yourself or with others. There is also a beautiful white cabana where I've seen couples get married and also take wedding photos there. There is a little creek that runs behind it.

Wouldn't recommend the whole hike around BOTH ponds for really little kids or elderly, but the walk around the smaller, first pond would be perfect for both. Took a little over... More

Went here on recommendation from hotel staff and glad we did. Was a nice walk (even though a little hard to get down the hill when you have a disability) but really pretty and scenic.

This is a lovely, and pretty sprawling property located in the heart of Danbury. When you are there, you are surrounded by gorgeous landscape and vistas, as well as an extraordinary mansion. Whenever we visit, we look around and say, "Wow I feel like I am in a different state, like Vermont or something". Sweeping hills and fields of tall... More

Hundreds of acres with well marked trails (maps available) with ponds, hills, fields, a mansion and a castle. Plenty of free parking and no admission fee. Very close to downtown and a short drive from I-84. Bring your dog. Bring a picnic. Beautiful views and gardens.

My family and I hike here all the time, our dog's enjoy the open field of grass and we enjoy the beautiful views. Great place for a romantic picnic or to go for a run. Tarrywile is great for the whole family to enjoy =)

The development of this site was primarily due to the love and foresight of Sandy Moy. Although Sandy is no longer with us, the park is a fabulous tribute to her devotion. There are several trails to choose from; all of them lovely. There are fields, woods and water to enjoy.
