West Hartford, CT —
West Hartford Has It All

Having lived here all my life, you should definitely take it from me that West Hartford has it all. It’s no wonder that Time & Money Magazines ranked West Hartford #15 in “Top Places to Live in the Country.” In addition, both high schools in town are consistently ranked among the best in the country according to U.S News and World Reports.

It is no surprise that so many people who grew up here come back to live. First, there is the sheer beauty of the town but then there are endless recreational, educational, occupational, dining and shopping opportunities. We have one of the top public golf courses in the country, Rockledge Country Club and the number one ranked aquatics center in the country. There is an incredibly vibrant downtown center which attracts people from neighboring towns to shop and dine at the unique, boutique establishments. Lastly, it’s only 20 minutes away from Bradley International Airport making it easy to travel in and out of West Hartford.

"...Westmoor Park is set on 162 acres of rolling meadows, perennial gardens, woodland trails..."

Not exactly hidden gems include:

The Metropolitan District Reservoir offers spectacular walking, running and biking trails throughout protected land and waterways.
Town owned Westmoor Park is set on 162 acres of rolling meadows, perennial gardens, woodland trails, ponds and a barnyard with farm animals. This place is a treasure for young, old and everyone in between. Open daily to the public from 9am- 4pm (and free!), the park also hosts summer camps, educational programs, field trips, community gardens and a 4H Camp. There are also special events like farm to table dinners, bird watching excursions, maple syrup-making classes and garden design seminars.
