If you join us at Rocky Corner, you’ll be living in one of the best small towns in Connecticut.
Bethany is the smallest of the 27 towns in New Haven county. It is a town with farms, horses, a volunteer fire department, a participatory town government, and a great public school.
Bethany has the Clark Memorial Library, an active garden club, a farmers’ market, a weekly outdoor flea market, the Bethany Historical Society, and the Bethany Land Trust. The newest addition to town is the CT Football Club, with indoor and outdoor soccer fields.
Veterans Memorial Park has a swimming pond, playground, and pavilion. Within the town are miles of hiking/skiing/horse trails. Annually, the town of Bethany hosts a Memorial Day parade, the Volunteer Fireman’s carnival, and a harvest festival.
Fun places nearby include: the JCC for fitness/swimming, the Ansonia Nature Center, and the New England Sports Complex for skating.
Bethany is located in one of the best school districts in the state of Connecticut. Bethany Community School is the town’s elementary school. The middle school and high school are part of the Amity Regional School District, which includes the towns of Orange and Woodbridge. Amity was recently named the top performing high school in the state. We also have two private schools within walking distance of Rocky Corner: Willow Tree Montessori and Surreybrook School. There are magnet schools in the area at all grade levels and a Waldorf school 30 minutes from Bethany.
A 5-mile drive south brings you into New Haven, where wonderful activities are happening every week: the Yale Peabody Museum, the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, Yale arts and lectures, the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, Long Wharf, Shubert, Yale Repertory theaters, the New Haven Open tennis tournament, New Haven Road Runners, Earth Day Rock-2-Rock bike ride, and on and on. New Haven is coming into its own as a foodie mecca with a multitude of spectacular, creative restaurants.
