Waterbury Village has seen a renaissance both commercially and residentially, as folks seek to live in a walkable community for family and work. Schools, markets, shops and entertainment in a downtown setting, make this a popular choice to reside.
The vibrant village has become a mecca for foodies and craft beer afficiandos and serves as the hub of the larger community of Waterbury, which includes the Blush Hill and Waterbury Center neighborhoods. Take a stroll downtown and enjoy fresh roasted coffee and conversation at the Green Mountain Coffee Cafe and Visitor Center in the beautifully renovated Waterbury Train Station, which is still served by Amtrak, adjacent to the Rusty Parker Memorial Park, a classic village green. The Victorian architecture homes in the village blend nicely with the State Office complex and newly constructed Library and Town offices. Recreational fields at Dac Rowe Fields allow plenty of room to play and there is a municipal swimming pool and tennis courts as well.
The downtown is home to many fine shops and restaurants including award winning dining from Hen of the Wood to local favorites Blackback Pub, Prohibition Pig, The Bluestone and The Reservoir.
