Tarrywile is our go-to dog park hiking spot! It is local within Danbury, has beautiful scenic views from Danbury's highest hills, and nice hiking trails that are great for even the beginner! Our dogs think of it as "their" playground, as they get the opportunity to meet other dogs and sniff out the park. There is a good sized pond... More

Beautiful park for a short walk or a day spent on a picnic. There are many trails that you can take and great photo opportunities. This is a prime spot for family and engagement photo shoots. There is a nice trail that wraps around the pond that is fairly flat and easy. I haven't explored the entire grounds but there... More

I have been to Tarrywile Mansion for several weddings. The park is also very nice. Many people hike and walk their dogs here. It is also the home course for the Danbury High School Cross Country Team.

Nice way to spend the day. The trails are clearly marked. If you like to walk in the woods then this place is for you.

The grounds are lovely and the house as a venue for events in Danbury is a welcome alternative to corporate banquet facilities. Access for events needs to be revamped as the driveway is narrow and one way and tall vehicles cannot pass under the portico. Parking needs to be closer to the building and the path to the current parking... More

Beautiful place for weddings. I am big fan of this park and mansion. Whether you're out walking running or doing any event on the inside it is always great to be there. The staff are the friendliest. Sam One of the workers are the nicest and most helpful person. I'm very glad of my experiences in there!

We attended our nephew's wedding 2 weekends ago at Tarrywile Mansion. Lovely spot in a park like setting. Charming mansion with a nice wrap around porch sitting on a small knoll. Not terribly fancy but quite charming. I don't think a very large wedding/event would work there but the approximately 110 people had plenty of space to mingle. It was... More
