Just south of downtown, this Riverfront park features a dock for excursion boat service as well as a public boat launch. Spend some time fishing in the Connecticut River. Take a walk along one of our paved and lighted river walks, or pack up a basket and enjoy a family outing in picnic areas complete with tables, a children’s playground and public restrooms. The parking is free; the beauty is priceless.
Charter Oak Landing is open to vehicle traffic from sunrise to sunset, 365 days a year with later hours during concert, performance and festival events.
Charter Oak Landing has plenty of free, off-street parking available within the park.
Port-o-let facilities are typically available in the parks May through November (availability based on weather and park activity) and during all Riverfront Recapture events.
Food and beverages are for sale during most Riverfront Recapture events. On non-event days, food can be purchased at one of the many area restaurants just a short drive from the Park. Information about local restaurants can be found here.
There are many great things to see and do during your visit to Hartford including museums, movies, parks, cultural events, theater, outdoor activities and more. Visit www.hartford.com for more information.
