Today is Monday, April 22, 2024 The Water Taxi is not running.


The Park is a collaboration of many dedicated like-minded people, organizations and communities working together to create a robust and diverse cultural experience linking the two shores of the Thames River and our significant place in American history. Our success depends on community members collaborating with and supporting the Park.

The Thames River has played a role in some of our country’s most compelling stories. A thousand stories, as we say. Stories of whaling adventures and the American Revolution, the War of 1812 and La Amistad, of the submarine service and more. Yet too few know these stories and how crucial this river has been in shaping our nation and our region.

Thousands of children who live in the shoreline towns of New London and Groton have never been on the Thames River or viewed their hometown from its vantage point. And, like many of their parents, they may spend their entire lives here not knowing how this river may have impacted it.

Your gift can help change this.
