Kent Falls State Park reopening after coronavirus-related closure
Kent Falls State Park will reopen at 8 a.m. Saturday after being closed for months.
The park closed in early April due to the coronavirus. The park’s narrow trail and stairway didn’t allow for adequate social distancing required at the time.
“Since then, restrictions on park features have lessened and the main trail that runs along the falls can be safely re-opened, as long as visitors continue to wear a face covering and practice social distancing,” the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection announced Friday.
The park is free to those with vehicles registered in Connecticut because of the state’s Passport to Parks program. It costs visitors with out-of-state vehicles $15 on weekends and $10 on weekdays.
