June 2, 2018- Fort Griswold Thames River Quest
The Fort Griswold Thames River Quest is one of three linked quests capitalizing on sites in the Thames River Heritage Park. The Fort Griswold Quest takes you on a self-guided walk through multiple stations to learn about the history of the fort and find clues to solve a word puzzle that leads to a treasure box. You can continue the quest with free water taxi rides (10:00 am- 12:00 pm) to the downtown New London Waterfront Park, where another route leads to clues about the history of the city and ecology of the river, and then to Fort Trumbull in New London. Treasure boxes await at the end of these quests, too. Each quest takes about 45 minutes. Register May 1st or after .
