The Fairfield Woods area is located north of Black Rock Tpke and the Stratfield area. It is a quiet suburban neighborhood, comprised of colonials, ranch and split-level style homes. A favorite amenity of this area is the Fairfield Woods branch of the public library. Great for families, this area includes Burroughs Park soccer fields and close proximity to Lake Mohegan and hiking trails. For the resident gardening enthusiasts, Drew Park is a community garden with gardening plots of various sizes on public land for individuals and families who reside in Fairfield. The plots are for the sole purpose of the cultivation of vegetables, herbs and flowers. (For more information about this hidden gem and how to reserve a plot, click on the link below.) Another appealing feature of the Fairfield Woods area is the proximity to Black Rock Turnpike and its variety of shopping, dining, and other convenient businesses. It sits in between I95 and the Merritt Parkway offering convenience for commuters.
