Northwest Park and Nature Preserve is a 473-acre municipal park owned and operated by the Town of Windsor. From its beginning in 1972, much of what once was tobacco farmland has been converted to biologically diverse forests and fields embedded with streams and many pristine views – areas that are accessible by 12 miles of hiking trails. The mission of Northwest Park is to maintain, enhance and protect habitat for native species, while providing educational and passive recreational opportunities for the public through a municipal park. Northwest Park will strive to remain an accessible “living classroom” with a diverse habitat that ties Windsor’s past to the present, while showcasing the future. Educational and passive recreational experiences will be offered everyday for persons of all ages and abilities, while serving as a model of land management, wildlife conservation and sustainable practicesPricing: Free.
