These 133 acres of meadows and woodland were once part of the Fitzgerald Estate Farm, a testimony to the Town’s agrarian roots and a beacon of the rural quality of life that is revered by the Woodbridge Residents.
Recently, the Woodbridge Land Trust has established a Chestnut Tree Orchard where several hundred Chestnut saplings are growing in an attempt to breed blight resistant American Chestnut Trees. Flora and fauna abound on this property. Picnic tables and benches are dotted along the way.
From the parking lot, one can proceed past the gardens to the open meadow and into the woodlands continuing north on the main trail. This part of the Woodbridge Greenway follows the Naugatuck Trail (blue blazed). Once you meet Center Road, cross the road and enter the Rice property and on into the Alice Newton Street Memorial Park. An alternate trail leads south to Rimmon Road.
On the southside of the parking lot, one can enter the woods at the Blue Trail marking and continue to Beecher Road. There, cross the street and continue on the Naugatuck Trail/ Woodbridge Greenway through Racebrook Estates trail system, out to Pease Road and beyond.
The very popular Fitness Trails loop around the two large open fields to the north of the parking lot, including the Woodbridge dog park. These loops also offer wider dirt trails for an accessible experience. The new state-of-the-art Firehouse is adjacent to the lower loop trail.
The Fitzgerald Track is open dawn to dusk.
The parking lot is located in the Center of Woodbridge, just off of Beecher Road, south of Center Road.
