Located in an idyllic setting, high above the Housatonic River, this was a picturesque place to explore the unique buildings and attractions on the grounds. The park is open all year round and admission is free of charge.

We went for a class trip today, it was so fun we even made cornmeal panckes! But so of the things were creepy like the child’s bedroom (aka the civil war room) and some of the manicans. The chickens were so cute though! I plan...More

I visited the Boothe Park. It was very peaceful and serene and the Rose garden was beautiful. I walked around and it was very safe.

A big park to share family time with. Has a historic old church there and even the original toll from the Merritt Parkway that I remember driving through all the time as a kid.

Beautiful park, well maintained by town and army of dedicated volunteers. Picnic areas, exhibits, festivals, special events, and concerts bring people back to this gem over and over again. One of Stratford's best places to retreat for relaxation and a history lesson.

My guess is no dogs. Stratford is in the process of creating a Dog Park at Roosevelt Forest. Boothe Park was rejected as a site for that facility but shouted down by park enthusiasts and neighbors. Best to go once... More

June, I believe. The park is beautiful just about any time though. The gardens are well maintained.
