Longbrook Park

Glendale Avenue
Stratford, CT 06614

About Us:

During the 1920s and 1930s, Longbrook Park was transformed from a swamp into a 34-acre park.  The park was built under the W.P.A. program with Depression-era, unemployed labor.  The transformation of the swamp into a park began under then town manager Donald S. Sammis.  In 1912, the U.S. Army performed the first Army Air exercises at the site of what is now Longbrook Park.

The park is a haven for wildlife.  Visitors both wild and human much enjoy the winding trails and man-made waterfalls.  Rock for the stone walls and bridges in the park was quarried from nearby Roosevelt Forest.
