This park a great! This park use to be a quarry and many of the old structures from the mining company still stand (follow blue to purple trail). This park has 3 freat features; 1) The stream/waterfall/creek is very peaceful (great during all seasons), the fishing is pretty good, and the swiming is a blast as well. 2) The Tower gives you a view of Long Island Sound, The City of New Haven, and Qin.-University. 3) The blue trail (The hardest trail in the park) will lead you on a winding tail pretty much straight up the face of the old quarry, there are some sections that timid hikers may find themselves crawling. Overall this park has something for everybody; the view, the peacefulness, and the challenge all make for an amazing park!
