Haley Farm State Park
It is my contention, perhaps unfounded, that Haley Farm is overlooked because it abuts the more popular Bluff Point State Park. Where Bluff Point gets you with its coastal scenery, Haley Farm is all about its history. Connecticut’s first governor, John Winthrop Jr., owned part of the farm in 1648.
The park’s namesake owner, Caleb Haley, left his hobby – building stone walls and stonecutting – all over the park for us to enjoy. The park was also a victory for the Groton Open Space Association and the CFPA who did the fundraising work in the late 1960’s to preserve the space. Combined with Bluff Point, the two parks make for a nice full day of hiking and biking and picnicking and kite-flying and all that good and wholesome stuff.
