  • What a great purchase by the town of New Canaan. The park is spectacular. The dog park is great. The art gallery is terrific . And the main house is a wonderful venue for parties . 
  • drove in here to eat a box lunch we had bought in town.....large park....baseball, soccer fields, jogging trails....seems to have it all....lots of woods, too 
  • This estate that was bequeathed to The city is an awesome place for a walk, the dog park is awesome, and sledding in the winter is the best. 4th of July can't be beat here, either.

  • This is a great park and mansion. Not super great for sunrise or sunset photography because there is a lot of tree cover, but there are huge fields where you can walk. I go there to deploy model rockets with my nephews because there is plenty of space and you don't have to worry about the rockets getting stuck in trees. It can get a bit busy on nice weekend days.
  • Very well kept, beautiful park. Lots of parking, open space, trails and even a dog park.
  • fly your drone but be careful with Scott, the security guy, he is no friendly, he scream the people, a bad Guy, really really bad guy
  • I saw some weird actions going on from a girl. Made my experience very bad
  • 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.
