Walk to Hartford, launch your boat, take a waterfront stroll or enjoy lunch at Great River Park. With its 350-seat amphitheater and many sculptures, the park is a pocket of cultural beauty surrounded by nature. Almost two miles of paved and lighted riverwalks make all the areas and amenities the park offers accessible to all. Located just across the water from Hartford, pedestrians can easily reach the city by crossing either the Founders Bridge Promenade or Charter Oak Bridge.
Open year round, with later hours during concert, performance and festival events.
Free, off-street parking available within the park. Parking may be restricted on certain event dates.
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 within walking distance or a short drive from the park.
The Sounds of Summer concert series kicks off with Latin Jazz in Great River Park. View Details
