Committed to preserving open space and promoting recreation, the town supports exclusive opportunities for outdoor fun. A state park, BMX bike park and access to the river for fishing and kayaking provide plenty to keep residents busy.
Seymour is home to many legendary parades and festivals! The well-known Pumpkin Festival during the autumn season as well a Christmas parade make Seymour a wonderful place to live. Farmer's markets, antique fairs and outdoor concerts all ad to the mix.
A newly renovated high school provides school to career training, college preparation, computer literacy and violence prevention.
