New Park Avenue

Park Road is a changing and important part of West Hartford. Park Road runs from the Hartford border (New Park Avenue) to Trout Brook and extends a few blocks on either side. Every year the merchants located on and around Park Road hold one of the best parades in the area – a fun, family day with absolutely no purpose other than to have a parade.  You might see anything from a Zamboni from a local rink to a cow from AC Petersen Farms walking down the road handing out candy or coupons for a delicious ACP cone.  “The Park Road Parade is a true representation of all that is good in West Hartford,” said Richard Patrissi, also known as the Mayor of Park Road.
