I have exercised here during my visit to New Britain. If your looking for a quick place to walk or jog a couple of laps on the park this is a prime location.

This is a jewel in our city. Always a favorite for walkers, runners, cyclists. It is well lit in the evening for summer night strolls. Roses at the top of the hill are lovely and there are exercise stations throughout the park. Baseball diamonds and tennis courts are very popular. And during the summer months, there are free outdoor concerts... More

The park is centrally located and the local hospital and art museum sit right next to it. There is also a memorial rose garden and a bandshell. This park is well designed and can be... More
