We connect people with the
Connecticut River

Since 1981, we have led the effort to revitalize the banks of the Connecticut River in Hartford and East Hartford.  We’ve transformed the Riverfront from an overgrown area that was walled off by flood dikes and cut off by Interstate 91 into four public parks connected by riverwalks.
