New Canaan, CT - Selling My House

New Canaan was incorporated in 1801 and is located 12 miles northeast of Greenwich and 48 miles northeast of New York City. Today this vibrant town remains distinctive for its manicured landscapes, its grand architecture, and its bustling downtown with brick structures and coordinating sidewalks; a visually picturesque and enjoyable place to visit, shop, play, and dine.

Ranked a top walking town in Fairfield County, the village Boutique shops line the streets and share the stage with high-end commercial shops. Here you will find cutting-edge fashion, home and beauty goods, an array of specialty gift items, antiques, and lifestyle services. Dining options abound and the food scene is quite extraordinary. There are many wonderful community activities to enjoy throughout the year; don’t miss the annual Village Fair and Sidewalk Sale, the Fourth of July Fireworks at Waveny Park, the Halloween Parade, and the joyful Christmas Stroll on Main Street celebrating the holiday season!

New Canaan offers excellent public facilities and a wide range of town-sponsored recreation programs; 14 town tennis courts at Mead Park, a town pool at Waveny Park, two ponds for skating (Mead Pond and Millpond), playgrounds at Kiwanis Park, Dixon Park, and Mead Park, as well as picnic areas for public use. At Mead Memorial Park there are baseball fields, a pond for ice-skating, and public tennis courts. Kiwanis Park has a town pond with a sandy beach that the younger children love. Private clubs include the Country Club of New Canaan, the New Canaan Field Club, and the Lake Club. The New Canaan YMCA is state of the art and has a thriving membership and loyal following. Private fitness clubs, personal trainers, yoga studios, and dance classes are all available in the downtown area.
