Once owning the largest fleet of steam-powered oyster boats in the world, Norwalk, Connecticut was once named Oyster Town. The city vaunts over 1,000 acres of park and shoreline land as well as dozens of best-in-class courts, including municipal tennis and basketball, as well as soccer and baseball fields, and a public golf course. Many of the best events in Norwalk are hosted outdoors, including the annual Oyster Festival.
Cranbury Park public park is gorgeous, with a vast lawn and a mansion. It has wooded trails, a dog park, pavilion and a regulation disc golf course that winds in and out of the forest. Luckily for Fido, Dogs are more than welcome on the trails and in the orchard, surrounded by sugar maple trees and evergreens. Cranbury Park makes an excellent outdoor destination for visitors and locals alike in Norwalk in addition to aiding in discovering a piece of Norwalk’s history.
