Welcome to Friends of Cranbury Park


Friends of Cranbury Park is a nonprofit citizens alliance working in partnership with the public and the city of Norwalk to preserve, protect, and enhance Cranbury Park. We’re dog owners, nature lovers, history buffs, photographers, disc golfers, parents, kids, bikers, trail runners, picnickers, government officials, and, well, basically, a group of people who love and look out for Norwalk’s largest park.

The Friends of Cranbury Park are excited to announce our annual Spring Cleanup event, set to take place on Saturday, June 22 at 9 AM (Meet in the Dog Park area). This annual community event invites volunteers to gather in the spirit of stewardship and camaraderie to contribute to the beautification and maintenance of our beloved park.

Our projects range from park cleanups, arts, and entertainment to participating on city committees that chart the park’s future. Work by FCP members resulted in Cranbury Park’s nomination to the State Registry of Historic Places in 2010 and the placement of the Gallaher Mansion on the National Registry in 2011.

The park, on the Norwalk-Wilton border, consists of 227 acres surrounding the historic Gallaher Mansion. It offers wooded trails, a dog park, pavilions, playgrounds, and a regulation disc golf course that winds in and out of the woods.
