Berry Park is a picturesque passive park which includes areas of natural trails for hiking or a leisurely stroll through the park’s expansive views of mountains, streams, lake areas and overall rustic beauty. Each season brings a new perspective to those that enjoy nature at its finest.
The park is located on the site of the old Faber farm at the intersections of Berry and Ludlam Roads in the town of Monroe. The Town of Monroe purchased the Faber farm and some of the surrounding lands to set aside public land for the use of scout units and other outdoor groups. Locally known, Berry Road Park is the “home” campground for various local boy scout troops.
Troop 440 became the first group to use Berry Road at an inaugural campout at the park with the help of James Rogers, former Councilman. Over the years many improvements at the park came through Eagle Scout projects to further enhance its use through marked trails and bridges to connect areas. Our local Boy Scouts are proud to call Berry Road Park home and camp there several times a year. A new first for Berry Road happened in April 2014 when members of Troops 340, 440 and 540 gathered for the first Monroe Camporee. Scout skills were demonstrated and learned, games were played and lots of great food was eaten. It is our hope that this becomes an annual tradition to be shared amongst the Scouts and Scouter of the Monroe area.
