Gay City State Park
435 North Street
Hebron, CT 06248
Our Last paint out scheduled for 2019 is at Gay City State Park in Hebron, beginning at 8:30 AM. It offers a beautiful lake surrounded by fall foliage, and a winding stream that reflects the deep blue sky of autumn.
Located on the Hebron-Bolton town line, Gay City’s 1,569 acres of parkland offer swimming, picnicking and an almost endless opportunity for exploration. The name “Gay City” derives from a now-extinct mill town that once occupied the site. Today only some tumbling stone foundations, several grass-filled cellar holes and a few silent tombstones suggest its former existence.
From the South/New London area: Follow Route 85 north. Park entrance is 6.7 miles past the intersection with Route 66.
From Glastonbury area: Take Route 85. Park entrance is 2.0 miles past the intersection with Route 94.
The weather is unpredictable this time of year, but we hope to see you at this last paint out for 2019.
