Description of Services

Trumbull takes great pride in our natural landscape, and has set aside over 1,600 acres of town land as recreational areas and open space.

Outdoor recreational opportunities include the 18-hole Tashua Knoll's public golf course and the 9-hole, par-33 executive Tashua Glen public golf course, more than 20 tennis courts, many lit for night play, basketball and volleyball courts, two public and two private natural swimming areas, one indoor and two outdoor swimming pools, two sprinkler park areas, a BMX bike track, hiking trails, tot lots and playgrounds, and numerous lacrosse, baseball and soccer fields.

Hikers and cyclists travel from all over the State to enjoy the trails in Trumbull's Pequonnock River Valley State Park.

The Trumbull Park Commission and Department are responsible for the care, management and control of all parks and grounds used for park and recreational purposes and all structures thereon. Together, we work in conjunction with all other municipal departments predominately with Public Works, Education, Recreation and Health, as well as with the athletic leagues within our community, to maintain and enhance our beautiful park and recreational facilities.
