a nice treasure in ole New Britain. The bandshell is not as active as it was when I was a kid, but everyone uses the roads to stay fit. Never played tennis there but the kids have used the playground many times. Something for everyone an NB does a real good job keeping it up!

Excellent facilities for walking. Two times around equals two miles. Cool breeze and excellent scenery with beautiful homes and landscaping. Good parking and very easy to find. The rose garden at the top level is well worth the visit.

The sporting fields are recently renovated, the music shell hosts summer concerts, the Rose Garden is beautiful and peaceful, the surrounding homes are dignified and reminiscent of days gone by. The Museum of American Art and the Hospital... More
