Let's Get It Done

About the Park

Tarrywile Park, a 722-acre municipal park, is open to all the residents of the Greater Danbury area community.

The Park, once an active dairy farm and fruit orchard, is now home to 21 miles of hiking trails,
2 ponds, a lake, and several picnic areas.

Hours & Use

The park is open to the public year round, seven days a week from sunrise to sunset (weather permitting) at no charge.

A REQUEST TO ALL BRIDES, GROOMS, LIMOUSINE DRIVERS/COMPANIES AND PHOTOGRAPHERS: If you are considering Tarrywile Park and Mansion as the location for your wedding photos or quick ceremony at the gazebo, please call the office first to ensure that we do not have a wedding already scheduled for that date. Booked rentals at Tarrywile take precedence and you will be asked to leave if there is an event going on that has paid to utilize the area.

Bird Nesting Areas from May 1st thru July 15th: Please help us preserve their fragile ecosystem by staying on the roadways and marked trails. The fields will not be mowed during this period.

Thank you for your cooperation.
