Tarrywile Park wouldn’t be the beautiful oasis it is today without our many volunteers. We deeply appreciate all they do to help our small staff keep up with the demands of managing 722 acres of park with 17 buildings and 21 miles of hiking trails.
United Way Day of Caring
We have corporate volunteers who help us with large and small projects during the United Way Day of Caring. Theirs team from Belimo and Praxair have been responsible for dredging the ponds in the Children’s garden. The crew from Pepsico were responsible creating a system of steps up to our overlook area for brides to navigate for their wedding day photos, and painting the greenhouse.
Boy Scout Projects
The Boy Scouts have given us plenty of service time throughout the years. The are responsible for most of our picnic tables which you will find scattered around the park, shoring up the campsites. There have been many Eagle Scout projects including bridges for our trail system, a bird box sanctuary.
Girl Scout Projects
The Girl Scouts have given us many educational tools. As a Gold Star project, 5 interactive signs were created for children to learn about wildlife as they walk around the pond as well as signage at the Silo that explains some of the parks history as a dairy farm.
Danbury’s Youth Volunteer Corps
The Youth Volunteer Corp did work in the wetlands area to clear the path to the learning station and install the fencing.
