The Glastonbury Riverfront Park project includes a public boat launch, crew launch, canoe/kayak launch, a dock for the Fire Department’s rescue boat, a picnic pavilion, children’s playground, lighted basketball court, outdoor ice skating area and a boathouse. In addition, multi-use trails and walkways were created as well as a new access drive and parking area, along with landscaping, plantings and signage.
As construction manager, O&G worked with the Town and CT DEEP and the Army Corps of Engineers for all required permits, inspections and reports. The Boathouse includes equipment storage space for 67 shells, exercise room and a meeting space, as well as public restrooms in the lower level. The upper level houses the banquet facility, accessed by stairs or elevator, including a kitchen and dining area and outside deck with a beautiful, expansive view of the River.
