This page is a triple entry for Chaplin’s town park Edward Garrison Park and Joshua’s Trust Hubbard Sanctuary and Agnes’ Pasture.

Garrison Park is a small town park that offers a quarter-mile crushed stone walking track, ball fields, pavilions, and playscapes, and a new disc golf course. Connections to Hubbard Sanctuary as well as the Natchaug Forest total about 3.5 miles of hiking.


Within the boundary of Garrison Park there is a small gravel walking track around the edges of the ball fields that is around a half mile long.  Hiking along the edge of the Hubbard Sanctuary leads to a short loop trail along the forest edge around Darling Pond and back to Garrison Park.  A yellow connector trail takes you up a steep slope to another Joshua’s Trust property, Agnes’ Pasture.  There lies a small loop through the stonewall lined former pasture which is now in early succession.

Another trail branches off as an out-and-back in an adjacent parcel of the Natchaug Forest which eventually leads to a gate at Pumpkin Hill Rd.

Disc Golf

The 9-hole disc golf course here at Garrison Park was completed in 2020 and features mainly nice open holes with a few obstacles and water hazards.

There are posts, but it looks like the hole signs were just laminated paper stapled to the posts so most were missing.  The only hole with a posted distance was Hole #2 a 300′ par 3 so you can gauge the rest based on that.

Here’s a rough map I made of the course layout:


The park was dedicated to Edward Garrison in 1974.  Garrison served as first selectman of Chaplin from 1955 to 1973.
