Located off Cunningham Road, in a large vale that encompasses wetlands and swamp, Sunset Ponds was acquired in 1991 as a gift from the New Milford Savings Bank.

The 17-acre gift is significant for the totality of both aquatic and land species supported by the swampy pond and its adjoining forest land. The pond supports sunfish, brown trout, bass, turtles, crayfish, numerous frog species and snakes. The surrounding forest is home to white tailed deer, raccoon, fox, rabbits, shrews, voles, bats and the occasional bear.
