We partner with the City of Hartford and the Town of East Hartford to support and manage the four Riverfront parks.
The innovative management plan for the Riverfront parks is nationally recognized as a model for urban parks. The plan created a unique partnership among the two municipalities (the City of Hartford and the Town of East Hartford), the regional water and sewer authority (the Metropolitan District) and a nonprofit organization (Riverfront Recapture). The partnership was created to protect the significant investment made in creating the parks and to fulfill their potential as priceless regional assets.
Our important relationship with the municipalities of Hartford and East Hartford defines each partner’s responsibilities to the parks, from daily services to long-term development.
