USA - Hartford Waterfront

The Hartford Waterfront is a series of parks (Riverside Park, Charter Oak Landing, Great River Park, Mortensen Riverfront Park) that are maintained along the river. A good place to start is at the Riverside Park. It has free parking and is right off I-91. The address is 20 Leibert Rd, Hartford.

There is a boat launch (useful for kayaks- the courant has a useful list of kayak rentals here) and public restrooms here from May-November typically. The parks are open sunrise to sunset typically but you can always check before you go on the website. There are about several miles of walkway to enjoy a stroll, and sculptures in various spots along the way.

There are also various informative pieces along the walk, including information on the flooding of the river and some of the highest floods.

As you continue on the path there are also a few beautiful bridges included along the way.

If you walk far enough from the start you'll reach a bridge that overlooks where some events are held down…
