We connect people to 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.

Big Mo’ Jazz Brunch

Over the past two years, public parks have been a place for positive change, so we’re bringing the Big Mo’ back into the parks it supports for another year.
