“Perhaps more suitable for locals”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Very helpful and friendly staff but it's not much of an attraction for visitors from faraway places. Couldn't find much to see here, though it seems quite spacious. Might be suitable for folks who are looking for quiet moments.

“So much to see and do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

What a beautiful park! 4,000 acres strong!! Kid-friendly museum is fantastic. Very nice boardwalk that circles Little Pond, across wetlands, through woods, over the pond and streams. Great place to fly a kite, picnic, hike, kayak, bird-watch, etc.!!!

“Nature at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I have been visiting the White Memorial foundation on and off for over 25 years and appreciate that their recipe for success has not drastically changed over the years. The quiet and solitude nature of the preserve is reason enough for a visit. The wildlife and the large variety of flora and fauna make this a destination worth the trip. If you are looking for a theme park then go to Disney. If you enjoy nature the way is should be, plan a trip to Litchfield and the White Memorial.

“Educational”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Great place for walking. Facilities for lectures. I went there to do a presentation combining Art with Science in a screened in facility. Location somewhat 'tricky' to find. Grounds spacious.

“Clean Quiet Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Plenty of hiking trails and open spaces. Great to get some fresh air to spend the day or for a quick walk. Museum on site is educational and fun for kids. Make sure you call to see if they're open, esp. in winter.
