Harkness Memorial Park

Harkness Memorial Park (Mike Piskorski Fox 61 / September 5, 2009)

There's a little slice of paradise right here in Waterford....called Harkness Memorial State Park! This gorgeous property includes a lovely beach (but, no swimming is allowed!) and a mansion, once owned by millionaires Edward Harkness and his wife, Mary. Visitors can enjoy the water and gardens...and can also tour the mansion on weekends. It's one of Connecticut's hidden gems...the perfect spot for a fall excursion!
