Linking two rivers, three cities and six bridges! Home of the Derby Hall of Fame
The Derby Greenway is the most heavily used of all the trails in CT. Over 400 people have already completed the short survey, but only 15 of those are from users of the Derby Greenway. Take a couple of minutes one day after using the trail to complete the anonymous and brief survey. Scan the QR code or simply go to s.uconn/trailcensus.
The Derby Greenway was officially opened with a dedication on Derby Day - June 25, 2006. At that point in time, the 1.7 mile trail was completely open from Main and Bridge Street to Division Street. Click here for photos from the Grand Opening. The Derby Greenway is the most used trail in CT as measured by the Connecticut Trail Census project (see more below). The trail is open from sunrise to sunset year round and the City of Derby plows it during the winter.
Did you know that the Derby Greenway continues to overwhelmingly be the most used of all the trails being measured as part of the Connecticut Trail Census since the Census was started in 2018? Check out all the latest stats by clicking here.
The Derby Greenway was also the first trail completed in what eventually will become the 42 mile long Naugatuck River Greenway. Here is a video prepared by the National Park Service about the Naugatuck River Greenway:
