Thames River Heritage Park quests are, family-friendly, treasure-seeking hikes that take you on a fun learning adventure. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to follow a series of clues at Fort Trumbull State Park, Waterfront Park in Downtown New London, Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park or Thames Street in Groton to learn about its history and ecology while solving a word puzzle. All four parks have varying degrees of walking paths and trails. Complete one or all four Quests to win a free t-shirt or free Harbor Cruise passes!
