Proposed Design of Whitewater Park

Proposed Design of Whitewater Park

Willimantic Whitewater Park

Willimantic, CT

Description

This park-in-progress is planned along river in Willimantic. A riverside trail will connect the park to the Air Line State Greenway Trail, which leads east and west from town. This park will also be included in the Florida-to-Maine East Coast Greenway via a connection to the Hop River State Greenway Trail. A whitewater park for kayaking in the river is also planned. The Willimantic Whitewater Partnership has acquired a property east of Bridge Street, and preliminary environmental studies are in progress. Currently there is no public access without permission of the Partnership.
