Most of the rock I found here was soaking wet. Will have to venture back out after it gets much hotter out. There is one roughly 60' wall I found that has a lot of potential. On the other side of the park is a vertical wall about 30'-40' that also has potential. Didn't find any real boulders per se, but like Mobley said, with a little love, this place could prove a decent local spot. I surely wouldn't travel far to come here considering other climbs available within CT, but for locals, it seems like it could be decent...
Oh, and the trails are very poorly maintained. In order to find any rock you have to venture off the trails some anyways, but it's a shame there is no real parking and the trails are pretty bad.

|Is this the place with that pointy looking "tower" spire feature behind the commercial buildings that you can see from the highway??|

No Ryan, that is a different area, which is active an active quarry btw, so doubtful you can get access to the spire. (A friend of mine and I hiked around from that complex to try to find backway access to check the spire out, but couldn't find any access point, other than the quarry itself. The rock below the spire, behind the complex, is really sandy and crappy btw, so I wouldn't even know if that spire would be any good honestly).
Quarry park, is a tiny little park in fair haven, that actually offers some nice forest hiking, but very little in the way of climbing, and what is there is pretty chossy...
