Flora & Fauna: Greenwich Point Park (Greenwich, CT)

Destinations, Lifestyle, New England

The seasons in New England are so short that they must be embraced. As soon as summer’s heat becomes too hot to handle, fall appears in a beautiful, brightly-colored fashion. I consider it something to treasure, though, as I appreciate the variety of the seasons.

One of our local gems – a joy during each of the four seasons – is Greenwich Point. To locals, it’s still known as Tod’s Point, as it was wealthy banker J. Kennedy Tod who in 1884 purchased and transformed the property into much of what it is today.

While training for the Fairfield Half Marathon, I did a number of early morning runs through the park and was always amazed at the array flora & fauna. I felt as if I had walked into a “wildlife wonderland!”

Unfortunately I was never able to stop and take in the scene, so on a recent summer morning I headed down to Greenwich Point for a leisurely nature walk. Here’s what I spotted:

Have you ever felt as if you’ve stepped into a “wildlife wonderland?” If so, I’d love to hear where it was!
