Winter Activities in Derby
A few cold days and a little bit of snow provides some winter
recreation opportunities and a chance to escape winter cabin fever. Check out
these scenes of some hardy souls enjoying the winter wonderland that
envelopes the city when winter reaches its zenith. Click on the photos for larger images or follow
the links to even more pictures.
||The sun is seen setting over Pickett's Pond within the confines
State Park. Whe the Pond is safely frozen over, the Park is even open and lighted for night
skating. Bring some wood and some marshmallows and enjoy a fire in
the pavilion. Click
here to see more.
|Across the street from Osbornedale State Park, many enterprising
individuals turn a snow covered slope adjacent to the softball field
into their own sledding paradise. Sleds in all sizes and shapes
can been spotted on the steep run when conditions are right. Click
here to see some people enjoying the snow.
||If you're really into the outdoors, you might want to venture
out to the frozen waters of Pink House Cove on the Housatonic
here to see some intrepid fishermen who thrive on the winter
|Back in Osbornedale Park again, we run across people cross
country skiing and snow shoeing through the snow covered trails.
Don't have skis or snow shoes - then try our "virtual"
cross country tour of Osbornedale by clicking here.
It won't be as nice, but it won't be as cold either!
