Rich in open space, North Stonington boasts one of the largest state parks in Connecticut and over 20,000 acres in protected open space, forest and farmland, recreational areas and conservation easements. The Shunock and Green Falls Rivers provide excellent trout fishing as they meander through protected pristine corridors. The five lakes in town offer year round recreation including swimming, sailing, water skiing and tubing, kayaking and canoeing, summer and winter fishing, ice skating and cross country skiing.
Hiking and equestrian trails crisscross the miles of municipal and state trails. Wildlife abounds with deer, turkey, osprey, herons, fox and beavers sharing the openness of our land. To hold such natural beauty in a Boston, Providence, New York corridor of high development makes North Stonington an oasis of country living.
The mission of the Economic Development Commission is to enhance the economic well being and long-term prosperity of North Stonington by serving as an important catalyst for new business and a critical resource for existing businesses who wish to grow, in a community that values its rich rural heritage, authentic New England character and rare quality of life.
