Nature & Recreation
Old Lyme's unique ecology makes it a remarkable destination. Nature lovers and artists alike continue to be drawn to the beauty of our woodland hills and meandering estuaries. Explore the forests, rivers, and access to Long Island Sound. Consider taking part in bird walks by the Roger Tory Peterson Estuary Center, a September Swallow Cruise, or a self-guided tour of native pollinator public gardens across town.
Residents enjoy a variety of recreational leagues for all ages. Whether looking for a youth lacrosse club, a weeknight men's basketball league, or a rowing association for all ages, there are numerous options for recreation and leisure here. Information about sports clubs, recreational leagues, and fitness for youth can be found here, and for adults here under Live in Old Lyme.
