23rd Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog Competition

by Harriman Real Estate on July 27, 2015

23rd Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog CompetitionWhen I was a kid, we had a dog who loved to chase frisbees.

Notice I said “chase”, not “catch”.

If you threw the frisbee, Shep would run underneath it and watch it until it hit the ground, then he’d wait until it was finished bouncing, rolling, skidding or otherwise came to a full stop before he’d pick it up and bring it back to you, covered in doggy drool, and drop it at your feet, waiting for you to launch it into space again.

Those were the days…

Well, if you can relate to my Heinz 57 mutt and maybe have one yourself that actually catches the frisbee BEFORE it hits the ground, then this event just might be for you.

On Wednesday, July 29th from 6 – 8:30 PM, the Wallingford Department of Parks & Recreation will hold their Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog Competition at Doolittle Park. Sponsored by Hyperflite, the premiere maker of doggie flying discs, this will be the 23rd edition of this amazing competition to find the area’s best frisbee fetcher. At the first event in 1993 there were six competitors, but now this contest has grown to over fifty frisky entrants, and they can’t wait to see that first disc whizz into the air! Be sure to bring along a picnic lunch and watch all sorts of leaps, bounds and amazing catches by some talented animals.

All dogs must be on a leash when not competing. Registration is open to anyone who is interested in seeing how their K-9 companion matches up against the best of the best, and Hyperflite will provide plaques to the top three finishers. In case of rain, the event will be held Thursday, July 30th.

By the way, my Shep would NOT have gotten a plaque…

Top Ten Reasons to Live in Wallingford CT

by Harriman Real Estate on June 27, 2015

Founded in 1670, Wallingford, Connecticut has been my home town for over 20 years. The population at the 2010 census was 45,135, but that doesn’t mean it feels like a big town. Indeed, there are many things about Wallingford that make it an amazing place to live! After surveying several hundred residents…

Here are the top ten reasons to live in Wallingford CT:

1. Central location. Located just a few miles south of the geographic center of the state, Wallingford is ideally situated for easy access to the rest of the state. Interstates 91, 95 and 84 and Route 15 are all close by, making getting to your favorite locations (beaches, parks, attractions, concert venues, casinos, etc.) pretty easy. I was able to drive to Springfield, MA for a show in less than an hour, and that included several minutes stuck in traffic.

2. Excellent schools. Wallingford is served by two public high schools (Lyman Hall and Mark T. Sheehan) and one private one (Choate Rosemary Hall), and several elementary and middle schools. Among Choate’s alumni are President John F. Kennedy, two-time presidential nominee Adlai Stevenson, playwright Edward Albee, novelist John Dos Passos, philanthropist Paul Mellon, and actors Glenn Close, Michael Douglas, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Paul Giamatti. For more information on Wallingford schools, please click here. Also, please watch this amazing video made by students and faculty of the Wallingford school system to see why they are proud to attend school here:

Wallingford Public Schools — “I’m so proud…” from Moran Mustangs on Vimeo.

3. Local wineries. Wallingford is fortunate to have two excellent wineries within its boundaries: Gouveia Vineyards, located at 1339 Whirlwind Hill Road, and Paradise Hills Vineyard, located at 15 Wind Swept Hill Road. Both are part of the Connecticut Wine Trail and feature excellent locally made wines served in an atmosphere of friendly hospitality amid relaxing views of the Wallingford countryside.

Top Ten Reasons to Live in Wallingford CT

4. Local amenities. From amazing places to eat, to the above-mentioned wineries, to a great public library to the community pool, Wallingford has the programs and services you’re looking for. Here’s just a few of the many amenities Wallingford offers:

  • Train service from New York City to Springfield, MA with stops in town
  • YMCA (2 locations, one on the East side and one on the West side)
  • Senior Center
  • Wallingford Center Inc.
  • Shopping (from big box stores to locally owned boutiques)
  • Health care facilities/doctors dentists/therapists
  • Ample open space to preserve the recreational, ecological and aesthetic value of the undeveloped areas of the town
  • Quality lodging facilities, including a Victorian Bed & Breakfast
  • Excellent walkability, especially in the downtown area and the Linear Trail, which is currently undergoing expansion
  • A Farmer’s Market, as well as several area farms such as Farmer Joe’s, Geremia Farms and Beaumont Farms
  • 3 golf courses
  • Holiday Cinema movie theater
  • and much more!

5. Oakdale Theater. Built in 1957 as a tent in a field of alfalfa, the area’s most famous venue for music has grown substantially. Since it’s opening, the Oakdale has hosted countless bands and musicians, including classic rock acts such as Led Zeppelin, Chicago, Santana, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Steely Dan and Cream, and more contemporary acts such as Jill Scott, Josh Groban, Lady Gaga, Brooks & Dunn, and Pentatonix. In addition, many well known comedians have graced the stage here, including Howie Mandel, George Carlin, Don Rickles, Rich Little, Jerry Seinfeld and Lewis Black. The venue seats approximately 5,000 and is one of the historical icons of Wallingford.

Top Ten Reasons to Live in Wallingford CT

6. Historic significance. Founded in 1670 with 125 settlers, Wallingford has a rich and diverse history. George Washington passed through twice (1775 and 1789), one of the last witch trials in New England took place here in the 1690’s, and it’s the birthplace of several prominent historical figures, including Aaron Jerome (Winston Churchill’s great-great-grandfather), Lyman Hall (signed the Declaration of Independence), Moses Y. Beach (founded the Associated Press), and WWI flying ace Raoul Lufbery. Wallingford has several sites on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Samuel Parsons House, The Nehemiah Royce House, and the Center Street Cemetery, which dates to 1683. See here for more of the history of our amazing town.

Top Ten Reasons to Live in Wallingford CT

7. Parks/Recreation. Wallingford is fortunate to have several beautiful parks within its borders, including Community Lake, Doolittle Park, Viet Nam Veteran’s Memorial Park, Pragemann Park, Harrison Park, Lufbery Park, and Harriet Wallace Park. Several parks contain playscapes for children, ball fields, picnic areas and tennis courts for your enjoyment. All Wallingford parks are overseen by the Department of Parks and Recreation.

Top Ten Reasons to Live in Wallingford CT

8. Low taxes/mill rate. The current mill rate in Wallingford is 27.47, which is a slight increase from the previous rate of 26.89. However, this low tax rate still affords residents relatively low property taxes compared to other cities and towns in the state.

9. Low crime rate There have been several studies on crime rates in Connecticut towns, and some that rank towns according to how safe they are. The criteria that is used in most of them varies, but most will agree that Wallingford is one of the safest towns in the state to live in. Don’t get me wrong, like most towns Wallingford has issues that it has to deal with, but overall the level of crime in Wallingford is substantially below that of most comparable towns.

10. Wallingford Electric Division Probably one of the most unique features of our town is the fact that it has its very own electric division. The men and women who are entrusted with keeping our electricity flowing are second to none, and usually don’t get the credit they deserve. We have endured several natural disasters in recent times, including a hurricane and tornado-like disturbance called a microburst, and in both instances the Wallingford Electric Division staff worked around the clock to get the power flowing again to our residents, and did it with a minimum of delay or complication. In the 20+ years I’ve lived here, we’ve only lost power once for longer than an hour, and the problem was fixed quickly and efficiently. Couple the efficiency and dependability of the service with some of the lowest electric rates in the region, and you’ll understand why most residents feel that Wallingford Electric is the #1 reason why Wallingford is such a great place to live!

11. Bonus: The People While it’s great to have lots of amenities, good public utilities, low taxes, low crime, etc, it can be said that a town is only as good as the people that live there. If that’s true, then Wallingford truly is at the top of the heap. The people of Wallingford are compassionate, friendly and warm, but also fiercely protective of each other. During times of hardship and struggle, they will willingly reach out to neighbors and offer aid in any way they can, and ask only that it be paid forward. While Wallingford can be called a small city, having over 45,000 residents, it’s those people that give the town its small town charm and appeal.

If you’re thinking about moving to Wallingford and needed something to convince you it’s the right move, I hope this helped. If you need additional info, please feel free to reach out!

Wallingford Community Pool to Open

by Harriman Real Estate on June 9, 2015

Beat the heat this summer in the Wallingford Community Pool!

The days are getting longer, the kids will be out of school soon, and the temperatures are getting warmer and warmer. What better way to handle those three events than by taking a cooling dip in the community pool?

Wallingford’s Community Pool will open initially on the weekend of June 13-14th from 11am to 7pm each day. The pool will then close for a week and reopen for the season on June 20th and close on August 16th.

Pool passes for adults are $15, $5 for children under 12 and also for seniors 63 and older. Also, non-residents can also get pool passes this year. A Wallingford resident must sponsor a non-resident and accompany them to purchase a pass. There will be two forms of non-resident passes: a Two Week Pass that will be dated and cost $15.00 per person, and a Season Pass that will cost $30.00 per person. (There is a $15.00 replacement fee for all lost tags. Children 15 and under are required to have an adult present with them at the pool.)

Passes can be purchased at the Wallingford Parks and Recreation Department located at 6 Fairfield Boulevard. Their office hours are 8am to 7pm and Saturday 8am to 12:30pm. Proof of residency – driver’s license, tax bill, report card or school ID – is required. If you purchased a pass last year you can take it to the Parks and Rec office and they will put a 2015 sticker on it so you don’t have to have a new picture taken!

Don’t let the summer heat and humidity get you down this year, head down to the community pool and stay cool this summer!

Hours: Daily, 11am to 7pm
