Brooksvale Park is a public park owned and operated by the town of Hamden, CT. Brooksvale is a farm inspired park that includes farm animals, a vegetable garden, a sugar shack for boiling maple syrup, a bee apiary, a field for recreational use, and many hiking trails. The Park is also involved with many educational programs designed for school children year round and campers during the summer, focusing on nature and wildlife. The farm animals are involved in the camp programs as children learn about animal husbandry and agriculture. The animals live at the Park year round and create a real farm atmosphere that children and adults enjoy. The public is able to interact with the animals if they choose in a respectful manner. Please keep in mind that there is absolutely no feeding allowed to any of our animals. During the warmer months, the farm garden is up and running. School children, campers, and visitors can walk through the garden and learn a bit about horticulture and our gardening process. During the colder months, the Park focuses on maple sugaring and teaching visitors and school children about the process of boiling sap and tapping our sugar maple trees around the Park. You'll find more information about the history of the park, the barnyard, the garden, and other amazing things the Park has to offer in the main menu. Thank you for visiting the park website and we hope to see you soon!
