Water Taxi Season Opens in
We're Open!


These quests are self-guided, family-friendly treasure-seeking hikes that will take you to Fort Trumbull State Park, Waterfront Park in Downtown New London, Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park and Thames Street in Groton. At each site you will follow a series of clues to learn about the history and the ecology of the area and the river while solving a word puzzle. Participants who finish any of the quests and send in a selfie at the final location to info@thamesriverheritagepark.org will be entered into a random weekly prize drawing.  Each hike is a separate experience, but can be linked with rides on the Park’s water taxi. Due to Covid-19 be sure to check the banner at the top of this website to find out whether or not the water taxi is running.

It’s a fun outdoor activity for young and old alike! 

Print out a quest below, grab a pencil, and go!

Please be respectful of social distancing when following the clues.
