Onatru Farm Park and Onatru Preserve

The Onatru Farm Town Park and the Onatru Preserve are owned by the Town of Lewisboro. They were donated by Alice Lane Poor. Onatru is a nonce-word created by her father, Edward Lane, from "On a True Farm." Recreation facilities at the park include fields for baseball, soccer and lacrosse, tennis courts and a play area. A marked walking trail leads through hardwood forests and a stand of Scotch pine. The open fields afford a good opportunity for bird watching.
The Preserve across the street from the park consists of marsh and a small pond reached by a short trail suitable for the smallest of hikers. A camping area is available with a permit from the Town Clerk. The remnants of an old foundation can be found in the woods near Shady Lane. Trail length is 1.5 miles.

Level: Moderate

Directions: Onatru Farm is located at 99 Elmwood Road in the Lewisboro Hamlet. Parking is in the Park
