Message from our President

  • by

We are pleased that you are visiting our newly revamped Friends of Tarrywile Park website. You will find useful information about the park and the Friends of Tarrywile Park (FOT).

Hopefully you have visited and enjoyed this majestic park consisting of 722 acres in Danbury, Connecticut. There are 21 miles of hiking trails and 2 ponds, a lake and many picnic areas, along with what remains of Hearthstone Castle. The trails also incorporate with Ives Trail which runs from Ridgefield through Danbury to Bethel. The upcoming Norwalk River Valley Trail (NRVT) will also run into Tarrywile Park.

The centerpiece of the park is the Mansion which available for rentals for weddings, parties, corporate events, etc.

FOT board members are all lovers of the park, some of whom have been hike leaders while others of us walk our dogs or hike or bike or even ride our horses in the park.  Some of us are lucky enough to live near the park and consider it our “back yard”.

Become a member of FOT and be updated with our latest news and events. Please come and enjoy Tarrywile Park and all it has to offer.

Happy Hiking,

Susan Lauermann
President, Friends of Tarrywile Park
