How to get there: From I684, take exit 3 Armonk. Head North on 22. Right on North Greenwich Road/433. Go to the stop sign. The Audubon is to the left through the gate.
From the parking lot, head to the left of the building and through the fence. Stay on the grass and follow the wide, grassy path down to the back of the building. The trail switches back and forth down the hill, good for strollers and wheelchairs with a bit of work.
There are stations along the way, including a slide, building block with wooden log pieces, a river, a water pump, a fort building area, things to climb on and in. So much fun for all ages.
The only drawback is there is no shade on the entire hillside.
When you’re done, head back up the way you came or continue on to the hiking trails.
