Introduction of West Rock Ridge State Park

The West Rock Ridge Park Association was founded in 1974 with the goal of “urging the state to acquire more land to complete the park” and “acting as a watchdog to prevent inappropriate activities” at West Rock Ridge State Park. The park, which is located in both Hamden and New Haven, Connecticut, includes West Rock Ridge and Lake Wintergreen. Canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and picnicking are all popular activities.. West Rock Ridge State Park, located near several major universities such as Yale, Southern Connecticut State University, Albertus Magnus College, and the University of New Haven, has become a popular site for ecological, geological, and other environmental research. The WRRPA maintains existing trails and creates new ones as needed. It also sponsors programs about the area’s history and natural environment.
