Growing up at Edgerton fondly known as The Brewster Estate.

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... read 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

This park is beautiful. The landscaping the history and most of all the memories I have of the many times I visited with my brother Louie, my husband Etien and my dear children. Lovely to go spend time walking and enjoying the beautiful views. My brother introduced this park to me as Brewster Park so for me it remains to... More

Pleasant little park, nothing spectacular, but a great place to see the annual productions of Elm Shakespeare!

Have been coming here for the last two summers to see productions of the Elm Shakespeare Company. It's a fun thing to do on a warm summer night and a great way to introduce children to Shakespeare. Bring a picnic supper and enjoy!

Edgerton is lovely and unassuming, well-used and well-loved by those who live nearby. A rolling hill and large old specimen trees lend an air of peace and calm. There are programs throughout the year, perhaps most notable being a Shakespeare in the Park during the summer. The lovely original stone greenhouse contains avwide collection of specimen plants as well as... More

Throughout my years in New Haven this has always been my favorite park. In the beginning, large, spread out, and walled-in it was a place to take my dog for a walk away from city traffic. Then, when I had kids, it was a place to walk a fussy baby to sleep while enjoying the fresh air. When the kids... More

A wonderful walled park. Great place to picnic or just to go for a stroll. The former Brewster estate which was left to the City of New Haven, it is very well maintained and it feels as if you are in extensive park land with wonderful old trees. Usually very quiet and peaceful, it is not familiar to the general... More

First discovered this as the venue for Shakespeare in the park, concerts, festivals even a taichi class. It's a wonderful place to take a short walk and relax for an hour or so roaming along little paths. Lots of dog walkers. Nice greenhouse. Some lovely hidden areas.
