|An extensive network of trails meander along recreational areas, a community garden, lawns, fields, shrublands, the Wepawaug River, wetlands, vernal pools, and forested areas. The trails connect nearly every portion of the 200 acre Eisenhower Park. Eisenhower Park is the home of many community events during the year.
The Wepawaug River flows the entire length of Eisenhower Park. Part of the river is diverted to a pond and forms a small island connected by bridges. The park’s extensive wetlands provide many vital environmental benefits. In 2007, over two acres of wetland floodplain and approximately six acres of enhanced surrounding buffer were created in south Eisenhower.
Fields and young forests are common features of the park. In most cases, they are found in abandoned agricultural sites. Occasional stone walls or excavated areas remind visitors of past land uses.
The variety of habitats in Milford’s largest park provides a diversity of scenic areas to enjoy and nurtures the park’s diverse wildlife. Migrating and nesting birds, butterflies, and other wildlife frequent here. Community volunteers and scouts have helped enhance the work of the City to make Eisenhower Park a place to enjoy. Leashed dogs are welcome when outside the fenced dog park area.
