The Thames River Heritage Park is awarded “Best Historical Attraction” in the state by Connecticut Magazine.

“We are thrilled that such a well-respected and well-read publication has chosen the Park for this award out of all the historical attractions in the state. It is quite an honor and a testament to the dozens of volunteers as well as to our local municipalities who have worked for decades to make the Thames River Heritage Park become a reality. And, the fact that we are just in our third season, makes it all the more amazing,” says TRHP Executive Director Amy Perry. “We have seen our water taxi ridership more than double this year as compared to last. This award will help broadcast how much history and culture there is to experience in New London and Groton as well as throughout Southeastern CT.”
