One of the best places in Danbury for a hike.

This is a great place to take a hike. You can make it as short or long as you'd like and it's really fine any time of the year. It's a good size area as we rarely ran into other hikers on our path, but really just the right size for a good workout. It's tranquil and a nice way... More

This really is a fantastic place to hike, walk, maybe have a picnic and generally spend the day in tranquil, peaceful surroundings. My family and I love this place a lot and would recommend it very highly. Free to enter, this place is owned by the City of Danbury. I believe the mansion is used for special events.

Hiked all the way to mootry peak. You can see Danbury hospital and a lot of downtown Danbury. Overall the park is beautiful. The grass fields, the ponds, the nice paths that are great for walking. After a hard day at work it's nice to go here and just relax in nature. It's so pretty whether it's winter, fall or... More

Had a nice walk around a bit of the park but I'm sure we could have made it a much more extensive hike. The pond is nice and the house looks beautiful but since it seemed like a wedding was going on, we just looked from a distance.

Beautiful trails, great for dog walking, hiking, jogging, or geocaching. Well maintained with beautiful surprises, both natural and man made. Easy to get to, ample parking, just one of the prettiest places around.
