1. The Community
Trumbull is a vibrant community that has a small town feel, but with the conveniences of a larger city. It prides itself on it being a welcoming, safe and family oriented place to live. It’s access to major highways and the commuter rail service makes getting to New York City, the airports or where ever your travels take you, easy and convenient. From its library system that offers events for young and old to the Trumbull Community Women, to the Rotary Club to the Volunteer Fire Department, there is something for everyone in Trumbull.
Conserving and safeguarding the history and the land that makes up the town of Trumbull is at the heart of the community. The town boasts its own Nature and Art Center committed to protecting and promoting the environment through hands on learning, it’s own Historical Society dedicated to preserving Trumbull’s illustrious past as well as the Nichols Improvement Association, an all volunteer organization that works to preserve the character of the community with family oriented events. It’s these and other organizations that strive to not only keep Trumbull beautiful, but community centric.

Trumbull has the most recreational and open space per capita in the state with 20 public and private parks - each more beautiful than the next. Many of the parks have tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts, soccer, softball and baseball fields and there are two outdoor swimming pools for town residents to enjoy. There are miles of hiking, walking and biking trails and if that’s not enough, the 104-acre Indian Ledge Park has a BMX bike track, an amphitheater, a woodland roadway and a dog park exclusively available to Trumbull residents.
