Flat & paved, the original section completed in 1998 and part of the East Coast Greenway, winds through the park & includes walk along the Quinebaug River & past Cargill Falls. Interpretive plaques explain area’s history while storybook trail entertains the kiddos.

Includes great photography or painting opportunities at scenic Cargill Falls. Enjoy a loftier view of the Quinebaug River from Church St. No fee.
