  • Christopher Lloyd actor and director of Back To The Future and many other films grew up in New Canaan in a place now known as Waveny Park. His family donated the park to the town in a humanitarian gesture an incredible gift to New Canaan of thousands of acres tax free to use as the town wants to use it. We built New Canaan High School tennis courts swimming pools theaters with thousands of unspoiled acres with hiking trails and jogging trails that appear to go on forever a part of a natural preserve filled with beautiful tall green forests and flowering plants. Christopher's former home known as Waveny Mansion is used for weddings year round with hundreds of films and television shows filmed here on this perfect backdrop with multi tiered balconies overlooking the meadows and the thousand acre woods. Squash and paddle tennis courts are available as well. Waveny Park is the setting for the town's Fourth of July celebration with magnificent fireworks hot air balloons and skydivers. The Fourth of July celebration is huge crowded amazing and for residents only.
