“In a park we have indeed left the real world and entered the world of fantasy and make-believe, where nature, under the control of art, gives pleasure and rest and escape from today’s worries.”
Humphrey Carver, author Compassionate Landscape
Waveny Park Conservancy in partnership with the Town and generous support from the New Canaan Community Foundation identified and tackled an immediate trail need. An extension to the perimeter trail along the South Avenue entrance road leading up to the main house has been completed. This design addressed the safety concerns of pedestrians walking in the road along a significant blind curve. We now have a beautiful trail that has been cleared of invasive vegetation and downed trees remaining from Storm Sandy.
