Welcome to Northwest Park and Nature Preserve
Located in historic Windsor, Connecticut, USA, Northwest Park and Nature Preserve is a 473-acre Municipal Park owned and operated by the Town of Windsor, Connecticut and is within the Department of Recreation and Leisure Services. From its beginning in 1972, much of what once was tobacco farmland has been converted to biologically diverse forests and fields embedded with streams and many pristine views – areas that are accessible by 12 miles of hiking trails. The mission of Northwest Park is to maintain, enhance and protect habitat for native species, while providing educational and passive recreational opportunities for the public through a municipal park.
Northwest Park will strive to remain an accessible “living classroom” with a diverse habitat that ties Windsor’s past to the present, while showcasing the future. Educational and passive recreational experiences will be offered everyday for persons of all ages and abilities, while serving as a model of land management, wildlife conservation and sustainable practices.. Our address is 145 Lang Road, Windsor, CT.
The Friends of Northwest Park is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation devoted to cooperating with the Town to promote and preserve the environmental beauty of the park, to maintain the Nature Center, and to providing public nature programs of many kinds for the benefit of our visitors.
