Capital City Parks Master Plan

Parks Guide Cover Image


We would like to thank everyone for your feedback and participation throughout this process!  The Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission approved the Guide (with comments - see Guide Addendum) on January 26, 2016.


The City of Hartford was focused on creating a master plan for its parks and open spaces: the Capital City Parks Guide. Great park systems are made when citizens, stakeholders and civic leadership take a holistic view of the benefits of parks, open space and greenways for future generations. Hartford’s plan provides a high level of specificity about the future of the parks and open space system, from development of a meaningful, clear understanding of parks’ needs, to design of concept plans for each park, to a roadmap for how to get there.

This plan considers ways to create more ecological diversity, greater connectedness, preservation of historic resources, and a balanced system of amenities and services that are accessible to all.
