The City of Hartford has embarked on creating a master plan for its parks and open spaces: the Capital City Parks and Open Space Master Plan. 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 will provide 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 will consider 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.

We would like to thank everyone for all your feedback throughout this process! The final plan is currently under review and we anticipate adoption of the plan this coming Spring.
