Newtown, CT Parks and Recreation  We try to post useful information that helps people to know more about Newtown.  Last April, we posted about Golf Courses and Parks in Newtown.  In this post, we mentioned Newtown Parks and Recreation, as they run the town parks.  Newtown Parks and Recreation is responsible for more than the town parks - they also have Town Programs. Newtown Parks and Recreation puts out new programs each season.  They print up a nice program that describes each program and gives the schedule for each one.  Programs are very diverse and some are broken out by age range.  Here's a sampling of what Newtown Parks and Recreation typically offers: Swimming at the Newtown High School and the town pool at Treadwell Park Day Trips - there is usually one to NYC Computer Courses ...

Ram Pasture, Newtown, CT  We recently posted a blog, Pictures of Newtown, CT.  The photos posted are all iconic Newtown, CT images, but the one location that we frequently pass by is Ram Pasture.   Ram Pasture is located at the intersection of Route 25 and Route 302 (Sugar Street).  It's a big open field with a pond.  The annual holiday tree lighting takes place here and until recently, we didn't really know much more about Ram Pasture. So, Richelle took a trip to the Cyrenius H. Booth Library to find out more.  There she found "A Mosaic of Newtown History", a book written by Dan Cruson, Town Historian.  Inside were several pages about the history of Ram Pasture which were quite informative.  Here is a little history: The original name for this section of land was "Home Common" and it c...

The Inn at Newtown, Newtown, CT  We recently posted a blog, Pictures of Newtown, CT.  The photos posted are all iconic Newtown, CT images, with one being The Inn at Newtown. To many long time residents, The Inn at Newtown is still the Hawley.  The Hawley Manor was the name of this business from approximately 1930, when Mary Hawley died, until 1999 when the establishment was sold to the current owners. The Inn at Newtown is comprised of several distinct parts: The Tavern:  The more casual part of the restaurant.  Get a table by the windows in front & watch life go by in Newtown.  The bar is also located in this area. The Restaurant:  The more formal part of the restaurant. The Fairchild Room:  Great space for a private party.  Weddings.  Birthday parties.  Graduation parties.  Banquets. ...

The Newtown General Store, Newtown, CT  We recently posted a blog, Pictures of Newtown, CT.  The photos posted are all iconic Newtown, CT images, but one of our favorites, is The Newtown General Store. The Newtown General Store is a local deli and is like taking a step back in time.  When walking up to the front door, you'll notice the benches on either side of the front door and the large windows.  You can look inside to see who is eating at the front tables & wave to those you know. The wide plank wooden floors are uneven and show the age of the building.  The high ceilings and the centrally located counter with the candy jars bring back memories of years gone by.  There is a builletin board at the front of the building filled with business cards and flyers of upcoming events in Newto...
