This is the site of the first landing of Europeans in Connecticut and the beginning of Wethersfield. It is also a lovely outdoor space. I saw it on a great summer day, but I am told that it is also beautiful in the other seasons.

Took the dog here for a walk. Very nice walk, relaxing picnic area to watch the river and ferry. Saton the bench for a while with the dog, very nice. Can get very hot in the middle of the day- no shade on part of the dirt road walk.

Ok it's got some historical value, less polluted than it was in the 70's and mdc has stopped dumping sewage in it so that's an improvement. What else can you say about the cove. Not much.

If you've seen one cove you've seen this one. It's a cove, cut off by the highway on one side and people's back yards on another side.
