Harrybrooke Park

Was left in trust for use by the people of New Milford and surrounding communities…

by the late Frank A. Harden who established built his home and resided here with his wife Elizabeth from 1941 until his passing in 1965. Harrybrooke Park is a private park and is endowed by a trust fund left by Mr. Harden. Governed by a Board of Managers, the 48 acre park is open to the public year-round for walking, jogging, hiking and snowshoeing, etc., as weather permits.

The endowment left…

by Mr. Harden was his promise that the park could be enjoyed by generations to come of New Milford families at no cost to the town. The New Milford Lions Club built and donated two pavilions to the park for the community to use. The Friends of Harrybrooke Park volunteer group was established in 2008 to supplement the trust fund through volunteerism and fundraising to help ensure the park remains open and beautiful for all to enjoy. Special events can be held outdoors at the park's pavilions from May through October, or indoors in the museum year-round.
