Wilton Section: Norwalk River Valley Trail

Many Wilton residents have already experienced the beauty of the existing portions of the Norwalk River Valley Trail built near Sharp Hill Road, and near Merwin Meadows.  The NRVT committee is working to expand the trail in Wilton for so many reasons.  

As they state, “Fairfield County faces encroaching growth, and available open lands are quickly being developed, leaving fewer opportunities for local residents to experience the outdoors… We have become a car-centered culture that denies walkers and cyclists access to safe pathways… CEOs in our area want to attract young talent and need to offer recreational opportunities to get out and run, bike and hike.  Our children, in particular, need ways to connect with nature and the outdoors, as more of their time is spent indoors and in front of computer screens.”

The Wilton Woman’s Club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.  One of the first projects the club supported in 1966 was cleaning up the Norwalk River.  Today, our club is supporting the five-town NRVT committee as it creates a 38-mile network of trails along the river from Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, to Rogers Park in Danbury.  Since 2013, the committee has received over $1,000,000 in private donations.

The next step, for Wilton, is to build a boardwalk that will bridge the end of the trail just north of Sharp Hill Road to future trails from Twin Oak Lane to Skunk Lane. This 200-foot boardwalk will be used as an educational platform by local science teachers. The completed trail will provide opportunities for children to access safe walking and biking trails to move between sports, school, and social events.  It will give commuters access to the train station, and outdoor enthusiasts a place to walk, bike and enjoy our natural surroundings. The NRVT is ADA compatible and accessible to those with mobility constraints.

You can help raise funds for the Wilton section of the NRVT, and have a fun afternoon with friends, by attending the luncheon, fashion show, and silent auction on April 1 at Rolling Hills.  Click here to register.
