Together, we can make the heritage and culture of the Thames River region vivid and relevant to all by connecting people, communities,  institutions, sites, and stories to the historic waterfront and natural landscape of the river. We hope you will join us this year with a gift to the Thames River Heritage Park.

In just a few years, the Thames River Heritage Park has expanded its program from a water taxi ride linking historic partner sites along the river to include a host of historic land and boat tours. In 2018 we had 6,600 passengers enjoy a ride on our water taxi, visiting sites, dining or just getting out on the water. That number grew to over 11,000 in 2019.
As we look to the future with a vision of connecting more people – our local residents and tourists who visit our region – to the historic sites within the Park and the rich history of our area, here are some of the additional opportunities you can help bring to life:

A new boat route (and boat)to the Submarine Force Museum/USS Nautilus

New historically-themed boat tours

More programs with our historic partner sites to tell the stories of our nation

With your support, we’re making our culture and heritage relevant and accessible to all. But it’s just the beginning. We invite you to become part of our growth and expansion by making a donation today. Your gift — no matter the amount — will be warmly welcomed and will make an immediate impact.
