 Hospital Community Trail is Now Open

               We are pleased to support this
      important community initiative by making
      hospital property available for this new trail.

“ ”– Bruce King, N LH President and CEO

        On June 13, New London Hospital (NLH) and members of
        the community celebrated the grand opening of the Hospital
        Community Trail, a one-mile path with entrances connected
        to the hospital parking lot.

        NLH, the Town of New London, the New London Conservation
        Commission (NLCC) and Eversource – with guidance from NLCC –
        collaborated to create a walking trail that connects Newport
        Road, Parkside Road and the Lyon Brook Trail. This new addition
        to the extensive New London trail network will provide in-town
        opportunities for walkers, joggers and pedestrian commuters.

        “We are pleased to support this important community initiative
        by making hospital property available for this new trail,” said
        NLH President and CEO Bruce King. “We are grateful for the
        many hours that the New London Conservation Commission
        and the Town of New London Highway Department spent
        constructing the trail so it can be enjoyed by all.”
