Six Great Places to Visit in New Britain - Part 2


Walnut Hill Park is one of many parks in New Britain where a person can spend a beautiful day. It's located close to downtown just off of West Main Street. If you want to spend a quiet day laying on a blanket reading a book in the sun, exercising, playing tennis, people watching, or spending quality time with your family then this is the perfect place for you to visit.

The main part of the park consists of a huge field surrounded by trees and a walking/jogging path. There are exercise stations placed along the path where a person can do sit-ups, push-ups, chin-ups, and a variety of other exercises. There is also two clay tennis courts, two baseball fields, a cricket field, a kids playground, gardens, a war memorial, and the "shell" that hosts musical concerts throughout the summer. The surrounding neighborhood is very safe and has some of New Britain's oldest and largest homes.

On a typical day you will see people walking or jogging around the park. It's also a dog friendly park so you will see many people slowly walking their dogs enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The playground is well maintained and families spend quality time on the swings or see-saws.
If your ever in New Britain and need a place to unwind, get a little exercise, and enjoy the sunshine then Walnut Hill Park is a must see.
