About Riverfront Recapture:
For more than 35 years, Riverfront Recapture has been fulfilling our mission to connect people to the Connecticut River. When Riverfront was founded in 1981, MetroHartford was completely cut off from the Connecticut River by Interstate 91. We led the effort to reconnect with the river in ways that enhance quality of life and make our region a better place to work, live and play. The creation of Mortensen Riverfront Plaza in Downtown Hartford, Charter Oak Landing in South Hartford and Great River Park in East Hartford, and restoration of Riverside Park in North Hartford has given millions of people access to Connecticut’s most beautiful natural resource. Our four parks and Riverwalk trail system cover 148 acres along 3.5 miles of the Connecticut River. Riverfront offers a full calendar of events and programs ranging from fireworks and Dragon Boat racing to free weekly yoga and youth adventure programs. The revitalization of the Riverfront has led to renewed interest in the Connecticut River and vast improvements in the river’s condition. Our work has earned national recognition and awards, including the Waterfront Center’s Excellence on the Waterfront Top Honor. Riverfront is dedicated to building on the bold vision of a beautiful riverfront park system that is highly recognized and widely utilized regional asset.
