THAT’S HOW ONE of our Board members

summed up why he and his corporation

support Riverfront Recapture.

“And it’s not just a one-time benefit,” added

Bob Annon, Regional President of Webster Bank.

“Look at the numbers of people who visit the

Riverfront parks – and it’s obvious that changes

on the Riverfront are changing people’s lives.”

Nearly one million people visited the

Riverfront last year – drawn to an urban

destination that was difficult to envision when

Riverfront Recapture was created to restore public access to the Connecticut

River in Hartford and East Hartford.

The results are stunning – thanks to the generosity of our supporters.

The physical changes are the most obvious: a plaza over I-91 reunites

downtown with the river, and riverwalks and walkways on two bridges

connect parks on both banks of the river, where visitors find performance

spaces, boat launches, picnic areas, and a boathouse.

Perhaps less visible are the ways these ambitious physical improvements

affect the lives of people who use the Riverfront parks.

A Hartford Courant editorial last spring noted:

“Hartford’s most significant quality-of-life improvement in the last three

decades is its reconnection with the Connecticut River. The city was blocked

from the river by the construction of I-91 in the 1960’s, and some kids grew

up unaware that they lived in a river city. Now youngsters and adults row, fish,

bike, jog, cruise, listen to music and otherwise enjoy this great natural asset.”

We’re proud that you share the vision of a vibrant Riverfront. Together,

we’re introducing residents of Hartford and East Hartford to recreational possibilities

now available in their own hometowns, along a magnificent river.

We’re also pleased that people in rural towns, suburbs, and other cities are

making the Riverfront one of their favorite destinations, too.

People who use the Riverfront parks go home with a rich variety of

memories and stories to share. But they have one thing in common: they’ve

discovered the benefits of the “most significant quality-of-life improvement

in the last three decades.”

And that’s a result that all of Riverfront Recapture’s supporters can feel

really good about. Thank you for helping to make it possible.

With warm regards,

THOMAS P. CODY, Chairman JOSEPH R. MARFUGGI, President and CEO / 1

was a high school student

in 1990, he was a boat-builder

in Riverfront Recapture’s


summer youth employment

program. The next summer,

he was a landscaper in

Riverside Park – clearing

brush to help make way for

riverwalks and park improvements

that would come later.

“There was nothing there in

those days,” he says. “But I

loved that program. It made

kids like me aware of the

river.” Today, his career as a

Hartford firefighter brings him

back to Riverside Park, where


The Changing Riverfront

Changing Lives

he trains personnel assigned to

the fire department’s rescue

boat. The quiet river that

Lieutenant Quinones remembers

is busier these days – and

the teenager who cleared brush

is back on the Riverfront

helping to keep boaters safe.


Some high school students

are attracted to Riverfront

Recapture’s rowing program

by the outdoor exercise; others

like the fun of making new

friends from other communities.


drawn to the sport’s competitive

nature – and worked hard

to excel. Regan, a Hall High

School student from West

Hartford, started rowing in

Riverfront’s program and

became one of 40 rowers in the

nation at the US Junior

Women’s National Team’s

High Performance Camp last

year. This fall, she will row for

Yale University, which won

the 2010 NCAA Women’s

Rowing Championship. “I

wouldn’t have progressed as

far or as fast,” she says,


“without my Riverfront

coaches – who empowered me

to reach a higher level as a

rower and person.”

More than 1,200 volunteers

helped to keep the

Riverfront parks in great condition

last year – and BRIAN

BARANOWSKI was one of

them. A bass fisherman, he is

familiar with the river but most

of the other employees from

ING’s Windsor office hadn’t

been to the Riverfront until

they volunteered for a park

clean-up last June. “We

removed debris that a flood

left behind on mountain bike

trails,” he recalls. “We also

stained picnic tables – and

when a youth group and their

counselors saw what we had

done they gave us a big round

of applause. We realized then

that we were doing something

that everyone can enjoy – and

we looked around at this

incredible resource and said,

‘Wow, this is beautiful.’”

The top 25 finishers in the

Connecticut State Open


qualify for the New England

Cross-Country Championships

– a feat that no Hartford runner

had accomplished in nearly 40

years until DHAHRAN

VELASQUEZ did it last fall.

Dhahran is a sophomore at

Capital Preparatory Magnet

School, located within running

distance of the Hartford

Riverfront, where he and his

classmates train. Capital Prep

runners consistently win

individual and team honors –

including the boys team’s 3rd

place finish in the 2011 Class S

State Championships. “Our

partnership with Riverfront

Recapture,” says Coach Scott

Wojnarowicz, “has enabled us

to grow into a power in cross

country. Without the

Riverfront trails, we would not

be this competitive.”


CAVOLI began planning

their wedding, they immediately

thought about a reception

at the Riverfront Boathouse.

They ride their bikes in the

parks and Rosi competes in 5K



scrambles on the Riverfront.

“When you’re standing near

the Boathouse and look at the

river and the skyline, it’s like

you’re seeing a completely different

city,” Eric says. “It’s a

beautiful spot – and we wanted

to share it with family and

friends, most of whom had

never been to the Riverfront.

And people were blown away

by it.” As they celebrated their

love for each other, Eric and

Rosi also introduced their

guests to their love of the river

and the parks.

Beautiful birds impressed


African safari in 1986. Back

home, she set out to learn more

about our own extraordinary

birds. The Riverfront is among

the places she now regularly

visits to look for birds. She

heads to East Hartford’s Great

River Park early in the

morning, especially during the

Hartford Audubon Society’s

summer bird count, an annual

event that records all birds

seen within 15 miles of


Hartford’s center, for an analysis

of bird population trends.

While she’s birding, she also

sees more people in the parks –

walking, riding bikes, or

rowing. “I’m impressed with

how the parks have integrated

both banks of the river,” she

says. “The river is no longer an

obstacle that separates us. Now

we can see the river as an asset

that ties us together, as well as

providing a welcome habitat

for birds.”

Together, we have created a network of parks and riverwalks on

both banks of the Connecticut River that has become a national

model and priceless asset for the entire region. The following individuals

have committed to making provisions in their estate plans

to help protect this impressive asset – and preserve the Riverfront

legacy – for our children and grandchildren… and their children.

We invite you to consider joining them in ensuring that future generations

will also enjoy a vibrant Riverfront.

More to Come

Riverfront Recapture’s plans

include a riverwalk to connect

downtown and Charter Oak

Landing, including a new

entrance to the Riverfront

restoring the Coltsville Historic

District’s access to the river.

Concurrently, the imaginative

iQuilt plan envisions the Riverfront

as the eastern anchor of a

network of arts and cultural

assets and parks along a onemile

Hundreds of couples have begun

their married lives at the Riverfront

Boathouse. For information about

holding your wedding or other

special event at the boathouse, visit

to Bushnell Park and the

Capitol. DOUG SUISMAN, the

project’s award-winning

designer, says Riverfront

Recapture started this transformation

with the opening of

the plaza connection to the

river. Since then, he wrote,

“the tide has turned toward

making downtown walkable,

livable, and sustainable.”

It won’t end there. Possibilities

include riverwalk connections

to other communities, more

park enhancements, and additional

programming. And

changes such as these will

bring a new wave of impressive


Key to the Riverfront’s success

is a partnership that’s recognized

as a national model for

parks management.

Riverfront Recapture coordinates

design and construction

of parks along the Connecticut

River and manages the completed

parks for the City of

Hartford and the Town of East

Hartford. With the Metropolitan

District Commission, we

oversee MDC crews’ daily

maintenance of the parks and

we administer a Riverfront

Rangers program, funded by

the MDC, providing a sense of

security for park visitors.

The management agreements

produce a welcoming, wellmaintained

park system along

the Connecticut River that

takes full advantage of this

priceless natural resource. For

that, we are deeply indebted

to our park management partners:

the City of Hartford, the

Town of East Hartford, and the

Metropolitan District Commission.

Together, we’re getting

great results.
