Description

The Ansonia Nature Trail Network consists of a network of trails from the Ansonia Nature Center to the Mead School. The trail system is owned by the City of Ansonia and managed by the Ansonia Nature and Recreation Center. It is accessible to the public free of charge.

Once a small family-owned dairy farm, the park is laced with two and one-half miles of nature trails. The land encompasses almost 150 acres of wooded hills and grassy fields bisected by streams, a two acre pond, wet meadows, and an upland swamp.  The site is a wonderful microcosm of a typical Connecticut landscape which provides sanctuary to many species of New England flora and fauna.  A portion of the park has been dedicated to recreational fields including soccer, baseball, and softball, as well as several acres reserved for community gardening and a large playscape for younger children.

 

Other Information

Please adhere to all Park Rules and Regulations that can be found on the Ansonia Nature Center website.
