We discovered this lovely park while looking for the CT Folk Festival. The grounds are lovely and the greenhouses amazing. This was a win/win for us today. A music festival in a nature conservancy🌳

Just past downtown New Haven. Relaxing and spacious. There are lawns to sun under and trees for shade. Interesting events on some days or nights..concerts, Shakespeare, fairs, a good venue for picnics. A few rolling hills for kids to play as well. Great greenhouse with a wide variety of flowering and other plants. Some cool old buildings to check out.... More

Edgerton Park is super cute. My husband and I went to the greenhouse, which he had to pull me out of after about 45 minutes! There were so many unique plants, and most were for sale. If you are a plant lover, bring some cash! Prices were extremely fair!

Former Brewster estate, now public park. Great place to escape for a walk, bike ride or to enjoy many public events organized by Edgerton Park Conservancy.
