Optometrist Near Newington, CT

Optometric Specialty Group (OSG) welcomes patients from Newington CT to our West Hartford practice.

People come to Newington, CT from all over for the Mill Pond Water Fall Festival. The Newington Waterfall Committee has celebrated the famed waterfall through the Waterfall Festival, which is held every September in the center of town. The festival features over 72 vendors and local music groups, as well as the "Artist's Chalk Walk" in which artists of all ages compete to create the best chalk drawing while passersby attend the festival. In 2010, the Newington Waterfall Committee agreed to plant a Crimson Maple dubbed the "Thankful Tree" at the falls, giving Newington residents the chance to write on tags what they are thankful for.

The town seal depicts Mill Pond Falls, named for a sawmill that was built there in 1860. The 16-foot high falls, located in central Newington at Mill Pond Park, is the smallest natural waterfall in the country. A walking path that encircles Mill Pond includes a footbridge which crosses over the waterfall. There is also an observation area with benches at the base of the falls. The park is popular with residents as a place to walk dogs, ice skate, jog, and picnic; it also hosts the occasional wedding party and festivals. It is open year-round. The residents and visitors rely on the best eye doctors in the Newington area and head over to Optometric Specialty Group (OSG) for an eye exam with our optometrist, which is only a 10-minute drive away.
