The Incredibly Unique Park That’s Right Here In Connecticut’s Own Backyard

Most preserves in Connecticut are maintaining wetlands, marshes, and other natural areas. But why draw the line there? Practically a living time capsule, Haley Farm State Park is preserving exactly what it sounds like – a farm! But it’s not just any farm either. These colonial era lands were once part of the homestead of Governor John Winthrop, one of the most notable settlers in New England. He founded modern day New London and united the colonies of Connecticut and New Haven. Combine your love of history with your love of the outdoors and skip the museum. You’ll love exploring this place and the bountiful nature that surrounds it.

Haley Farm State Park is located at Haley Farm Lane, Groton, Connecticut 06340.
