National Parks / Natural World in Connecticut
There are some beautiful places to visit when you want a taste of the great outdoors in Connecticut.
Love nature centers? There are a number right across the state, including Roaring Brook and Flanders with year round educational programs for all ages, and Denison Pequotsepos which has a fun wildlife sanctuary too!
Kids can enjoy that classic park fun with a host of parks all around the area, from Brooksvale Park with outdoor adventure, sledding, hiking, and a petting zoo, and Bushnell Park and Carousel with a beautiful vintage carousel dating back to 1914!
From parks with spray pads, to parks with activities for the kids like cliff jumping, rock climbing and kayaking, the great outdoors really is great in Connecticut!
