Welcome to the Town of Groton, Connecticut

Parks and Recreation

We are proud to offer so many coastal access points throughout Groton, Mystic and Noank. Water access is a privilege we're all allotted by living in a shoreline community. Use this map to find beaches, boat launches, kayak/canoe launches, fishing spots, scenic views, birding locations, and more. Enjoy your summer outdoors!

Groton Parks and Recreation is conducting our Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan. This plan will help us make Groton a more accessible, connected community, that is safer to navigate for all. Your input will inform how we add or enhance bike lanes, sidewalks, crosswalks, trails, and pathways. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey. You can also engage with our Greater Groton project and use the mapping feature to indicate exactly where you would like to see improvements. Thank you for taking the time to make Groton a more connected community.

Go Groton Project Tile
GO (Get Outdoors) Groton is a strong partnership between Groton Public Schools, the Town of Groton, and Groton Open Space Association- GOSA with a focus on collaboration to increase equitable outdoor access to school-age children. We were selected as 1 of 19 cities and towns nationwide to participate in the Nature Everywhere project through Children & Nature Network, National League of Cities and KABOOM! The team is eager to engage in a community assessment process that addresses childhood health and well-being, as well as climate resilience and environmental stewardship.
We are beginning to roll out community engagement opportunities and your first chance to engage is through our project on GreaterGroton.com. Learn about the project and contribute using the features available. The page will be updated regularly as the project advances.
