Heron Cove Park 125 S River Rd, Tolland, CT06084 This unassuming spot along the Willimantic River has several unique characteristics. First is a rectangular, compact ice…More skating rink outside. Next to the rink is a basketball court with four hoops. Across from the rink and court is a soccer field. An Eagle Scout Project constructed a canoe launch in the north end of the park in 1999. Experienced canoers and kayakers can launch their boats into the quick-water portion of the river. Hikers can enjoy walks through maple, oak, and birch trees on the upriver and downriver loop trails.
