The Town of West Hartford will hold its first “Walk in the Park,” and what is planned as an annual event will be launched with an exploration of Trout Brook Trail – the town’s newest park.

The newest section of Trout Brook Trail – from Fern Street to Duffield Drive – has recently been completed, adding another 0.55 miles to what will eventually be a 3.5-mile linear park. Another 600 feet will be added before the end of the year, extending the trail to Asylum Avenue.

Families are welcome at Walk in the Park, which is being hosted by Friends of West Hartford Parks.

The walk begins at 10 a.m. at Norfeldt Field at the corner of Trout Brook Drive and Boulevard – where parking is available – and will traverse the trail northbound to Duffield Drive and then return to the parking area.

In case of rain, the event will be rescheduled for Sunday, Oct. 1.

Those interested in attending Walk in the Park can RSVP here.
