Trumbull is a gorgeous small town that brings in all the charms of New England and its historic heritage, and is seemingly untouched by time itself with many old historical buildings still in place. The town is surrounded by thick forests, making it a popular destination for tourists during the fall. The town also has lots of land dedicated to parks and facilities, with almost all of it being dog-friendly to residential and out-of-town pups.
The town even has its own dog park, known as the Trumbull Dog Park, a massive 10-acre park that's completely fenced-in. The park is one big space, with an agility course and double-gated entrance. Don't forget to bring some water and water bowls before going! The dog park sits inside the larger Indian Ledge Park, a 101-acre area with a large forest section that features trails and a river for fishing. There's also open areas, recreational fields, picnic areas, benches, water fountains, and paved walkways. Fido must remain on a leash outside of the dog park.
The longest and most traveled trail in the city is also dog-friendly, known as the Pequonnock River Trail. The trail starts in the south and extends all the way north 12.7 miles, with trail sections being made from asphalt and crushed stone, and providing access to water fountains and benches for leashed pups.
Not only are there five animals hospitals here, but many other parks and nature trails that will have you and Fido playing the Trumbone in Trumbull!
Hillendale is a beautiful neighborhood in the north, with thick forests intermittent with houses. The largest park in the neighborhood is Old Mine Park, an old mining area that became a park nearly 100 years ago. The park nowadays contains a huge forest with recreational space, picnic shelters, a large pond surrounded by open space, and a looping trail that expands over 1.1 miles around the park. Dogs are welcome in the area while on a leash, and can find fun in almost every corner. Additional features include benches, trash bins, water fountains, clean-up stations, and fishing spots.
