Former Brewster estate, now public park. Great place to escape for a walk, bike ride or to enjoy many public events organized by Edgerton Park Conservancy.

A rare park with no facilities for organized sport - just a place to walk around, rest on a bench or spread a blanket on the grass. Enjoy the greenhouses with your children and walk around the vegetable plots (no picking, though - these are privately tended). In the fall, "Sunday in the Park" is a great neighborhood event for...

This is a fantastic park. It was gifted to the city of New Haven. Has free plays open to all in the summer. Just a good place to wander around and safe too.

Edgerton Park is near the base of East Rock, on lands formerly part of a private estate. It has beautiful rolling grounds (sledding, anyone?) and lots of outdoor events, including Shakespeare in the Park, music festivals, and Sunday activities. There is a community garden with many small plots, a riot of color...many flowers. In the afternoon the greenhouse sells plants... More

My experience in Edgerton Park is limited to an evening spent enjoying one of the 2015 Shakespeare in the Park productions (The 12th Night). The area of the park near the stage was clean and well-maintained. I felt comfortable and safe, while enjoying a fun theatre performance.

I had the pleasure of attending a live performance of The 12th Night in this park and it was a lovely evening of friendly fellowship and entertaining at its best! Bring your own food & beverage - come early for good seating ( bring chair / blanket) and enjoy the show ! By donation only ( you should be generous!)... More

I was fortunate to have grown up on the Brewster Estate because my father, George Jones was their trusted, loyal employee for over 40 years. I was about 4 years old when we moved onto the grounds. We lived above the garage in what is called the carriage house now and I lived there until I got married in 1966... More

Edgerton Park is many things to many people. First and foremost, it's almost everybody's favorite place to walk their dog. There are lots of paved paths, as well as large expanses of open grassy areas. I have never taken our dog there when we haven't made at least one or two new dog friends. It's also a flower lover's haven,... More
