Hartford City Parks Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Once one of the richest cities in the nation, Hartford grew rapidly during the Industrial Revolution, doubling in population over the course of a decade.

To ameliorate overcrowding and other urban woes, the Reverend Horace Bushnell proposed building a city park in an area occupied by tanneries, pigsties, and a garbage dump. This route starts on Jewell Street, on the north side of Bushnell Park. Nearby landmarks include the carousel, added in 1974, and a lovely pond with water fountains and sculptures."
