We are asking that everyone park near Union Elementary School and take our complimentary shuttle to and from the Myers Pond Forest because it’s up in the woods and we don’t want people getting lost or anything. Plus the school has a nice paved parking lot and because it’s the weekend it should be empty.
Directions to Union Elementary School, 18 Kinney Hollow Road, Union, CT.
From the I- 84 W:
Take Exit 74 off I-84 W and turn left onto CT 171 E. Take your first left across the highway (Stay on 171 E) and at the stop sign turn right to continue on 171 E/Buckley Highway. After about 2.5 miles, take a slight left on to Town Hall Road (the cannon should be on your right side). You will go about 1000 feet and when you come to the top of the hill and intersection you’ll see the school on your right hand side. Find a place to park and look for our sign for the shuttle!
From the I-84 E:
Take Exit 73 off I-84 E and turn right onto CT-190 E/Buckley Highway. After about 1.3 miles, take a slight right onto Kinney Hollow Road and the school will be on your right. Find a place to park and look for our sign for the shuttle!
Union is not a big town (many of you know it’s Connecticut’s smallest town! population wise…) but if you make it to the Congregational Church and Cannon Statue (both are across from each other) you’re really close!
