Why Middletown ever cut itself off from the stunning Connecticut River by allowing Route 9 to be built is beyond comprehension. This little park is small, and there is not much there, but to walk along the beautiful river is relaxing and wonderful.

Very over priced and the service is a nightmare. We go by boat, which is tough if you go later that 11:30 for lunch. The usual suspects race there after that, and tie up the dock space for hours while they drink. Food is OK...More

The Canoe Club is the main attraction at Harbour Park. I've resided in Middletown for a decade. Harbour Park has appeared to weather well, although one wonders WHETHER the town has ever viewed it from a highly ecological point of view. It seems maintained on...More

This park had nice views of the river and bridge. The walk is short, but scenic. There are benches and swings for sitting, as well. It didn't blow me away, but it was worth checking out.

Easy to find, good parking, kid and pet friendly. Saw some folks casting fishing poles! Peaceful meander, not too long, some good seating to relax and enjoy the view. Selfie/ nature perfect photo opportunities

Nice walk along the river, perfect for winter exercise outside. In summer the boats and sailboats catch your eye, and there's a restaurant along the walk to stop and have lunch, or just a cocktail. Spells fun!

This is a great place to visit in decent weather, and perfect in great weather. One is treated to unspoiled views of the Connecticut River, bridges, and the surrounding hills, with their lovely trees and a few old buildings off in the distance. The tunnel...More
