Alert Message - Charter Oak Landing Closed to Vehicular Traffic 10/18 - 10/21 Learn More
Due to the construction-related road closure of Reserve Road, Charter Oak Landing will be closed to vehicular traffic Friday, October 18 through Monday, October 21. The park will be accessible to pedestrians and bicycles.
Mortensen Riverfront Plaza, a landscaped park over I-91 in downtown Hartford that opened to the public in 1999, is the centerpiece of the Riverfront park system. A stage at the river’s edge provides a scenic venue for a rich variety of performances, with seating for 2,500 people on grassy terraces that descend from the plaza to the Riverfront. Excursion boats operate from the downtown docks, which also serve events such as the annual dragon boat festival. The Founders Bridge promenade connects Hartford with East Hartford, restoring pedestrians’ access between the communities and the river.
Parking is available on surrounding streets and at area garages.
