Calf Pasture Beach Rd
Norwalk, CT 06855
Activities: Walking, off leash, dog swimming
Last Visit: 2015
Notes: On our last visit the off leash area was mostly unfenced and uncomfortably close to traffic.
Admittedly it has been a long time since we visited here, but we had a negative experience and never returned. The off leash area is large and beautiful – with a big pond at one end dogs could swim in, a rolling meadow in the middle and some woods along the north side.
Unfortunately, the lack of fencing and surrounding busy streets lead to some issues (the day we were there even the streets through the park were busy and traffic tended to move uncomfortably fast through them).
The final issue was the adjacent picnic area – some unfortunate young souls tried to have a bbq which every dog in the vicinity immediately swarmed as soon as the meat hit the grill.
All told, it was not a very relaxing off leash dog experience. We left fairly quickly and made the trip to Cranbury Park which was much more enjoyable for us.
I will make it a point to re-vist this location in the near future to see if conditions have improved.
