About This Area

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Crandall Park is the main park in town. It was started with the purchase of 37 acres back in 1969 and has since grown with additional acquisitions to its current size of over 400 acres. The original property including Crandall Pond was purchased from the Crandall family. Cider Mill Road got its name from the Cider Mill they operated where the diving board area on the beach is located now. The Park contains a mix of active and passive areas with approximately 20 acres developed, and the remaining 380 acres undeveloped. 140 acres of open space was purchased in 2000.

Mom of 2 in central CT, I have been a part of HIB since 2015 when I joined the Worcester branch in MA when my first child was still under 1 yr old.  Currently a Branch Ambassador for the Hartford Branch. We enjoy getting out to our favorite weekly HIB spot with friends and going on family hikes on weekends to check out new places in the area.
