After staying in Danbury for a dozen years we've always headed north in search of points of interests. It was nice to find a closer attraction. The gardens are lovely, we enjoyed a picnic. Miles of hiking trails but it was a little warm to attempt them.

Had our wedding there almost two years ago. A beautiful old place. Staff was wonderful. Becky was the greatest. Plenty of parking. The only thing is that you have to bring everything in.

This is a great place to go and take your dogs for a walk. With various trails it's great for pretty much everyone and has some nice things to see.

My wife and I were going to be in the Danbury area and wanted to take a hike. Tarrywile Park was the perfect spot. We weren't sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed the blue trail. One part of the trail was steep but overall it was exactly the type of hike we were looking for. We've recently gotten into... More

I am never sorry I came for a walk or hike at Tarrywile Park. Dogs must be leashed. Weekends can be busy.

Great hiking trails! Love being there it's clean and well maintained. It's not well known but you won't regret making the trek to this small park.

We enjoyed a long hike around the two ponds on a warm Sunday afternoon. The trails were very popular and well marked. Somehow we were on a very steep trail but well maintained and we all had fun. We didn't find any maps at the trail head. There was a photographer taking pictures of hikers for a local newspaper and... More

Tarrywile park offers several hiking routes, marked with colors on the trees and it is a quite nice area with some ponds and lakes. We did a 2 hour track yesterday which was a demanding one as it is quite rocky and with many part uphill but it was a really nice exercise after the long office hours.
