Great Meadows Riverfront

The Great Meadows riverfront on the Connecticut River is a sprawling expanse of approximately 5,000 acres of open land. Located south of Hartford, it winds through Wethersfield, East Hartford, Rocky Hill, and Glastonbury. This floodplain is a rich farmland and a diverse habitat for wildlife, making it an oasis of green in the urban sprawl of Greater Hartford. The area is accessible via a multimodal trail that begins near Naubuc Avenue in Glastonbury and ends by Great Meadow Road in Wethersfield. This trail leads to the Great Meadows, a restaurant with a river view, and Old Wethersfield.

The Great Meadows Conservation Trust was incorporated in 1968 by concerned citizens of Wethersfield, Rocky Hill and Glastonbury as a non-profit tax-exempt land trust to protect and preserve the Great Meadows.
