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.

We were here for an intimate wedding on a week day. It was the perfect setting. Wall enclosed, away from traffic, lots of trees, a fountain, only a few people walking their dogs, all of whom (people and dogs) were very respectful of the ceremony being held. It is located just a short distance north of downtown New Haven off... More

This park is just a lovely stroll. The carriage house has a stone angel on top. The bridge is now hidden by over growth but you can see its former glory. The fountain is nice, too.

I have lived in New Haven for a few years now and did not know this was park was here. I saw Shakespeare in the park last summer and it was great. To be very clear, the set was hokey, the actors were mediocre, the sound was okay BUT the experience was fantastic! PIT BULL awareness day is hosted in... More
