Exploring Connecticut's parks, trails and greenspaces
With so many outdoor spaces to explore in New England, we forget that some of the best hikes, and parks are right here in our backyard.
Today, we’re talking about trails and efforts to conserve Connecticut’s state parks. We hear from the couple behind efforts to refurbish Batterson Park and officially make it a state park.
We also hear about some efforts to make parks and greenspaces more inclusive for all residents.
We want to hear from you. What’s your favorite park, trail or hike here in Connecticut?
