Fairfield, CT —
Spend an afternoon in Greenfield Hill

What I love most about Fairfield is absolutely living in a town with both a countryside and a beach.
For a lovely afternoon in the country, take a drive up to Greenfield Hill. It’s a sprawling neighborhood of properties located in the northwest part of town, both above and below the Merritt Parkway. Homes are set on two or more acres, so hiking is literally in your own backyard. The beloved Audubon and Brett Woods beckon you to explore and delight in the quiet calm of a nature walk. The Audubon Center & Nature Store is open until 3 pm every day except Sunday, so be sure to take a peek at the owls and hawks in residence. The store has a great selection of bird-related items including feeders, birdhouses, birding books and gifts for the kids.

"The lovely Dogwood tree is dotted throughout, many of them right around the Greenfield Hill Congregational Church, dated back to 1725."

Cyclists, joggers and dog-walkers are the everyday norm up here, but it’s not unusual to encounter someone on horseback or a flock of wild turkeys crossing the street. Our out-of-town guests are regularly entertained with a walk around the neighborhood, a home-cooked meal and nighttime guitar playing around a large fire in the backyard. Sound idyllic? Welcome to Greenfield Hill. Beautiful in every season.
