  • Summer Activities Available In And Near Newtown

    Summer days may be long, but there is no shortage of activities in and near Newtown, from hiking to biking to horseback riding to swimming. A few Newtowners offered their own recommendations for summer outings.

    Fox Ridge Farm boasts many activities for equestrians of all levels. Sitting on 25 acres, Pat Gregory and Fox Ridge Farm have been located on Aunt Park Lane for 14 years. All Ms Gregory asks is that the young riders come equipped with a well-fitting, approved helmet, long pants, and a pair of boots with a one-inch heel.
