Enjoy viewing local CT Plein Air painters and listening to members of the
Eight Mile River Band on the grounds while exploring I-Park’s trails.
This is a self-guided trail walk. Visitors are reminded to wear comfortable walking shoes.
And, due to the fragile nature of the trails and art sculptures, no pets are allowed.
Reservations are required so we can plan for parking and staffing.

Congratulations to the Five Composers Selected for I-Park’s
2018 Composers + Musicians Collaborative Residency
This summer, composers Theo Chandler, Natalie Draper, Michael Gilbertson, Niloufar Nourbakhsh and Octavio Vazquez will spend two weeks at I-Park in an intensely collaborative exchange with the Akropolis Reed Quintet, rehearsing and refining new concert works for a pair of all-premiere performances in Connecticut and New York City.
The composers hail from the U.S., Spain and Iran, and have won numerous awards among them. Their works have been performed at venues around the world, including Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and Tanglewood, and have been featured in numerous recordings and on film.
Our thanks, too, to all the composers who applied for this highly competitive special residency.
We hope to see you all at the concerts! The early August dates and locations will be announced soon.
