“Walk From the Cove to the Broad Street Green -See Old Wethersfield!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

You can take a very decent walk along sidewalks from the cove through Old Wethersfield to the Broad Street Green (any passerby can give easy directions) and back. This is a 2 or 3 mile stroll depending on whether you do the one-mile circuit of the historic Green itself. On the way you will pass many historic buildings typical of Old Wethersfield, including the Buttolph-Williams house on Broad st and the elegant Silas Robbins House, now a bed and breakfast right on the green. I do this walk several times a week and see new things each time. Very quiet streets, extremely pleasant.

“Pretty but probably polluted?”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Boats can access the CT river from here, and it provides a scenic view during a walk through town. The old Onion Barn is here, and a volunteer might tell you everything about the seed and flax trade through this once booming port for a town founded over 3 centuries ago.

“nice place to walk”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

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.

“It a cove what can you say.”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

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.
