Hiking, Biking, Skating and more
Enjoy 4 State Parks, playgrounds, swimming pools, tennis courts, public and private golf courses. The Farmington River flows through town providing you the chance to try your luck at catching some trout, or just enjoy a leisurely canoe trip on a warm sunny day. The fun doesn’t end with the cold weather—we have miles of trails for cross country skiing, hills perfect for sledding, even an outdoor hockey rink. Plus a world class indoor skating facility home to premier skaters and Olympic champions.
Simsbury was recognized as the first bike friendly town in Connecticut and awarded the prestigious Silver Bicycle Friendly Community by the American League of Cyclists. Don’t have a bike? Not to worry, we are fortunate to be part of a regional bike share program that makes bikes available to borrow for up to 24 hours.

Historic homes are sprinkled throughout town, giving us that New England charm that many love. Several have indeed been registered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Perhaps our most notable nationally registered Historic Place is the Old Drake Hill Flower Bridge. Today it is used by hikers, bicyclists, and pedestrians. The picturesque flower boxes and hanging baskets make it a favorite place for photographers and artists alike.
Our landscape is dotted with several working farms, including an award winning vineyard, protected open spaces, and miles of hiking/biking trails. We are a community that values our environment.
