There are also areas of town near two universities, plus terrific municipal parks such as: Beachland Park andPool, Fernridge Park and Pool, Wolcott Park & Splash Pad, Eisenhower Park and Pool, Kennedy Park and Pool, and Cornerstone Indoor Pool.
West Hartford is also extremely lucky to have a reservoir system that features running and biking trails with more than 3,000 of some of the most beautiful woodland acreage in the region that contains 30+ miles of paved or gravel roads for joggers and bicyclists, hiking trails, wheel-chair accessible picnic groves, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing.
