Hartford Development Overview and Yard Goats Game
Join us for a fun evening featuring a baseball game at Dunkin’ Donuts Park, the brand new 6,056 seat home of the Hartford Yard Goats of the Eastern League (the Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies). Dunkin’ Donuts Park is part of the Downtown North (DoNo) neighborhood revitalization strategy.
The program will begin at the Hartford Hilton at 315 Trumbull Street with a reception and overview of current trends and recent developments in Hartford, including residential conversions, the new Zoning Code, I-84 improvements and the latest news from CRDA. Following the program, we will take a short walk to the stadium for the 7:05 p.m. start of the Yard Goats game against the Trenton Thunder. Convenient parking is located in several locations, including the Morgan Street Lot (1000 Main Street), the MAT Garage (entrances on Chapel Street South and Church Street), and the Market Street Lot (300 Market Street). The event registration includes one ticket to the game, which will be distributed when you sign in at the program.
