Riverfront Recapture was created in 1981 to develop a comprehensive plan to reunite Hartford with its Riverfront. In 2016, Riverfront revised its mission statement to the bare essentials: Connect people with the Connecticut River. Our vision is a beautiful riverfront park system that is highly recognized and widely utilized as a unique regional asset. The pathway to our vision and mission has several components: Riverfront Recapture is a guardian of the river and its parks. Combined with cultural, recreational and educational engagement, we connect people with the river and its parks. Our efforts provide an attractive destination for visitors and residents and encourage economic development including more than 800 new apartments near our parks over the last three years. We are pleased to play a role in revitalizing the region and keeping it vibrant and active.
