Quinnipiac River Park is a linear park along the Quinnipiac River. The park is bound by a bridge with a well-kept grassy lawn area and pleasant views up and down the Quinnipiac River. Benches provided along the river provide a place to sit. Lighting makes moonlit visits a possibility too. The shorefront across the river provides a nice view of the historic Fair Haven neighborhood.
