This small, 55 acre park in Ledyard is made up of two sections with its main 48 acre segment being the most used. The entranceway leads to a parking area that has a ramp for car-top boat launching on the five acre tidal estuary. The park boasts nearly 2,000 feet of frontage on, and access to, the Thames River, though access to the river is under the railroad bridge which could have restricted use during high tides. While most activity is down by the water, the park’s high point of 183 feet above sea level can be reached via a trail from the parking area. The trail leads to the top which was once an Indian lookout during times of conflict. Look for the stone walled Stoddard family cemetery in the woods 500 feet north (upstream) from the parking area.
