Keney Park in Hartford has received a $96,000 grant from the Federal Highway Administration. The money will be spent to improve hiking trails. WNPR’s Nancy Cohen reports.
A crowd gathered in front of a windswept pond to celebrate the grant. The pond is part of the park’s 693 acres which includes trails for hiking, biking, and even a golf course. Henry Hester, of the Friends of Keney Park, says the money will pay for enhancing trails and creating a web-based trail guide
