October OPEN Trails

October 14, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


I-Park is pleased to welcome the public for an OPEN Trails event, on Saturday, October 14, from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Visitors are invited to experience the 40+ art installations including newly installed works by Nate Byrne, Parastoo Ahoon, Anya Klepikov, Julie Peppito, Tammy West, Fiona Patterson, Andy Webster and Dennis RedMoon Darkeem.

At the welcome table, you will be given a trail map and are invited to explore the grounds in one of two ways. You can take a curated walk which takes about forty-five minutes or follow your sense of adventure with your trusty map. See the in-progress Pollinator Garden and enjoy a walk around the pond through the Boardwalk Trail.

You’re welcome to bring a picnic lunch and unplug in this natural haven. And, for our plein-air friends, bring your easel, pick a spot and paint the beautiful landscape.

The event is FREE and family friendly. We’ll have a scavenger hunt for all the kiddos with prizes. Outdoor enthusiasts of all ages are welcome, however reservations in advance are RECOMMENDED, though you’re welcome to sign-in at the Welcome Table. A suggested $10 donation for adults is welcome and would be helpful in the ongoing maintenance of our trails. For additional information, write events@i-park.org or call 860-873-2468.

Due to the fragility of the artworks and the natural features at I-Park, pets are not permitted on the I-Park grounds.

Important: You will be agreeing to our Visitor Code of Conduct and Photo Release when you register for Open Trails.

I-Park expresses sincere gratitude to volunteer gardeners Sue Carlson, Sarah Gworek and Elaine Wilson have established the Pollinator Garden with generous donations from Ballek’s in East Haddam, Town and Country in Haddam, Smithfield Garden Center in Middlefield, Pride’s Corner Farm in Lebanon and Getty Granite in Salem. I-Park’s Garden Committee welcomes additional donations of perennial plants for the pollinator garden.
