The community's diligent efforts to preserve the original charm and New England character of the town make Redding a choice place for families to live in picturesque settings.
Carefully monitored construction prevents over-development. Existing houses are attractive places, set on sprawling lots often on rolling hills and open meadows with views of classical New England stone walls. A wide variety in the housing market ensures that the needs and desires of all residents are met. The commute to New York City is made simple by a Metro North station in town.
This is all in addition to the fine public school system. The town has its own public elementary and middle schools. Joel Barlow High in Redding Ridge provides education to students from Redding and neighboring Easton.
Collis P. Huntington Park, Devil's Den Preserve, Topstone Park and Sunset Hill Riding Academy provide many opportunities for hiking, picnicking, ice skating and cross-country skiing. Equestrian training for young residents is available at Lonetown Pony Club, and a private country club.
