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.
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 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.
