Great River Park is a beautiful and much loved stretch of the East Hartford’s riverside. Stretching along the bend of the Connecticut River adjacent to East River Drive, Great River Park is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy the outdoors. Enjoy picturesque vistas of the riverside and the city along nearly two miles of paved and lighted Riverwalk. Facilities include a boat launch, picnic tables, fishing access, a 350- seat amphitheater and a unique collection of sculpture art. Pedestrians can easily travel back and forth to Hartford via the Founders Bridge Promenade or the Charter Oak Bridge just steps from the park.
The Town of East Hartford offers an annual 'Sounds of Summer Concert Series' at the Great River Park Amphitheatre. Concerts are open to the public and free of charge. Our concert series for 2018 has now ended, but we are looking forward to planning an exciting line-up of performers for next year's concert series!
