Monroe in Fairfield county, Connecticut

Monroe, CT

A bedroom community of NYC, Monroe has an independent vibe and a lively spirit characterized by bright education, recreation and civic involvement.

The carefully planned industrial districts blend peacefully with the old New England character of the town. Shopping and dining attractions abound along Route 25 in the Stepney section of town. The area around the Town Green remains untouched by time, with a classic Town Hall and the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library.

The grand 16-acre Great Hollow Lake features swimming and the only state DEP trout pound in the county! Lake Zoar and Webb Mountain park feature hiking, camping and water sports for residents. Monroe is also home to the area's only "Rails to Trails" bike path. Whitney Farms offers a public 18 hole golf course as well as a clubhouse and restaurant.
