“Wear your hiking boots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

There are over 15 trails with varied difficulties for everyone. Some are guided and others are not. You can hike for an hour or two or the entire day. The area is very pretty as well with a mansion on the grounds.

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Some really fine restorative work has been done here, and I am looking forward to visiting here again in the late spring, when all their gardens are in bloom and the mansion is open. A really beautiful setting.

“Delightful walks in the woods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Pleased to report a fine walk on a blazed trail around Parks Pond, part of this extensive estate open to the public. Trail slightly rough to begin with and even more so with fallen limbs from recent storm. A great getaway in a surprising location within an urban area.

“Beautiful and scenic park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

Tarrywile Park is on the south side of Danbury, with extensive hiking trails and scenic vistas. We stopped here on our way from Cape Cod, and we were pleased with the park and its scenery. There are plenty of ups and downs on the trails, and several small ponds and a lake to enjoy. The mansion is open for special events only, but it is worth visiting the park because of its natural beauty.
