Picnic tables were kind of grim looking aka not taken care of, there was 1 boat in the water and the others were covered up for the season it looked like. I wasn't overly impressed with this, there is no real place to walk far...More

We like to go here for the water view and just to unwind. There is sooo much history all around Old Wethersfield and the Cove is part of that history. A classic. Nice to picnic and fish.

If you enjoy sitting and doing nothing this is your place. Cove has a few dozen sail boats and a few fishing boats. Very peaceful and quiet. Good place for a picnic lunch.

The Cove is a wonderful place to take a walk in almost any season. In the neighborhood, there are many historic homes with signs telling when they were built.In the summer there a a wonderful place to get ice cream within walking distance.
