Town of Wilton
The Wilton Town Board is proud to offer a website that provides easy reference to information and services provided by local government and within the town. The website includes links to each department, a growing business directory and a community calendar. There are also links to important community concerns, such as the Open Space Plan.
Providing residents with open space for their recreational needs is important to the Town of Wilton. The town encompasses approximately 300 acres of Open Space to be used for passive recreational activities. Camp Saratoga, which is part of our Open Space Plan, has cabins, lean-tos, fishing in Delegan Pond and many trails to be explored. Wilton Wildlife Preserve and Park offers many fun and exciting programs for families year round.
To celebrate our community, the Town of Wilton provides an annual Community Day Celebration event that takes place at Gavin Park each year. Gavin Park, the Town’s “diamond in the rough”, offers many recreational activities to both residents and non-residents. Gavin Park has approximately 46 acres of active recreation space that includes 4 Little League fields, Babe Ruth field, softball field and many athletic fields for soccer, lacrosse, football, etc. Gavin Park also has a pavilion, a new playground, two indoor gyms and many year round programs for both kids and adults. During the summer, Gavin Park is full of life with a summer camp that offers kids a safe, fun environment during school recess.
In addition to recreation, the Town also offers a healthy and growing shopping district. The Exit 15 shopping district offers residents access to everything they may need. This vibrant area includes the Wilton Mall and is dense with big-box stores, malls, and restaurants for dining pleasure.
Providing many services and programs to residents is important to the Town of Wilton. However, with a fast growing population, it is also important to the Town of Wilton to provide a bit of financial relief to our homeowners. For more than two decades, the Town of Wilton has not imposed a town property tax. Having a “No Tax” policy, plenty of Open Space and recreational activities as well as retail and dining pleasures makes Wilton a wonderful place to live!
