Heron Cove Park
125 S River Rd, Tolland, CT 06084
This unassuming spot along the Willimantic River has several unique characteristics. First is a rectangular, compact iceMore 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.
Cross Farms Recreation Complex
247 Rhodes Rd, Tolland, CT 06084
The relatively new Cross Farms Recreation Comples is nearly a hidden treasure, neighboring Birch Grove PrimaryMore School. The 100-acre park features three soccer fields, two baseball fields with 90-foot bases and one baseball field with 60-foot bases. The park also has more than a mile of hiking trails that connect to the nearby high school, as well as a Family Fitness Trail. Perhaps what makes this site most unique is the fact that it has the only official 18-hole disc golf course in town, which threads through the woods, giving athletes both a solid workout and a lovely view of nature while they play.
