On Saturday, May 12, the community is invited to gather on one of Branford’s most frequently used public spaces – the – to .
“All present and former Branford residents who have ever donated their time and money, volunteered on a Town board or commission, and anyone who has ever skipped a stone at the or watched a sunset from , are invited to this Celebration,” the town has proclaimed.
From 1 to 4 p.m., there will be guest speakers including , Jane Bouley, and Peter Neill, Past President, Branford Land Trust. Informational displays, and activities for children will be part of this celebration of Branford’s land.
To help you know more about the public spaces in town and how you can use them, we’ve created an interactive map that we hope you find useful in getting out this summer to celebrate the land. Most of the information was derived from the Branford Land Trust website, the 2007 book, "The Walks of Branford" by the Branford Land Trust, and through various sources such as the Land Trust’s Bill Horne.
If you want to add anything about these properties and why you like to frequent them, please do so in the comments.
Please note that photos of maps in our gallery of the open space properties highlighted in our interactive map are current as of 2007 (please note changes in the captions).
