Fort Trumbull Peninsula Walk
Sat. Jun 4
Since Colonial times Fort Trumbull served as the location of various military forts, schools and research facilities for the United States Army, Coast Guard and Navy. The first Fort Trumbull was built to protect the New London Harbor from British attack, while the masonry fort (the third) that stands today was constructed between 1839 and 1852. The site was opened as a Connecticut state park in 2000. On this walk, we will especially focus on the peninsula’s trees and other plantings (old and new), as we explore the 16-acre park and its surroundings, discuss its history, and share ideas for rejuvenation of the Fort Trumbull neighborhood.
