This mansion was the perfect place to celebrate a close friend's wedding. I really enjoyed the decor, the view of the large grassy field, the patio for drinks and dancing, and just the general vibe of the whole place.

This is a great place to take a walk through the fields or the woods, have a picnic, fly a kite, or have a wedding. New Canaan is very fortunate that the estate was left to the town.

A great public park for all seasons and all reasons. Walk, jog, dog park, swimming pool, concerts by the mansion, games, paddle tennis, lying in the grass watching the clouds and model aircraft planes. Just great family fun.

This is the place to go, walk your dog in the doggie park, take in the once weekly summer concert series. You can picnic on the lawn, BYOB and enjoy a lovely evening with family and friends.
