Redding is a unique community, nestled in the heart of Fairfield county. Our residents are united in the preservation of the wonderful quality of life we enjoy.
We strongly support our public school system with high expectations for achievement, and the resources to meet them. We treasure our country landscape, 36% of which is permanently preserved as open space. We have 60+ miles of hiking trails, two State Parks, and the Town’s own Topstone Park providing residents and their guests a place to swim and canoe. Even the dogs have a beach at Topstone Park!
The Mark Twain Library is a hub of cultural and activity in the Town with a famed annual book fair that draws treasure hunters from afar.
Our Community Center provides a wealth of programming for all residents through our Parks and Recreation Department and also houses the Heritage Senior Center.
As Redding prepares to celebrate its sestercentennial in 2017, we are reminded each day that the vision for Redding’s future must include her past, and are actively engaged in the preservation of our historic structures. We recognize that a community’s greatest asset is its residents, and we encourage participation in town activities and governance at all levels.
