  • Farmington Canal Heritage Trail Hamden, CT 06514, USA - Hamden
    same area as previous graffiti, under 15 entrance ramp.
  • 595 Mix Ave Hamden, CT, 06514, USA - Hamden
    The HHS tennis courts continue to be in a state of deterioration. The patch work to fix cracks was poor at best. There are rough spots in the patched areas, and cracks are reappearing. There is mud on court 8 that has been there for months, rendering it unplayable. The court surfaces are flaking away and the entire court surfaces need to be resurfaced. The steps have tree debris from last Fall. The courts are a disgrace to be used in athletic competition.
    The courts have been deteriorating for years. What is the plan to repair them to bring them up to standard? BTW, the Middle School's are not much better.

    lewd graffiti on trail
  • 127 Treadwell St Hamden, CT, 06517, USA - Hamden
    This fence has been damaged at this playground for over a year. Many children play here daily and it should be repaired as well as many pieces of playground equipment that are broken or missing pieces.

    Hamden Middle School. Tennis Courts in disrepair. All nets falling apart. Dangerous cracks on the courts. High school courts also in bad shape. What are the towns plans for renovations?
  • 110-146 Treadwell St Town of Hamden, CT, 06517, USA - Hamden
    This park is in desperate need of repair. The fence has been like this for two years…much of the playground equipment is missing parts, rusty or rotting. Many children play here daily and deserve an safe, updated play space. We pay a lot on taxes and this shouldn’t be this neglected.
  • 435 Brooksvale Ave Hamden CT 06518, United States - Cheshire
    This footbridge was apparently constructed by the owner of property across from Brooksvale Park. It is property (not sure of the exact address) that backs up to the Farmington Canal Trail. It's the part of the canal trail that runs between Brooksvale Avenue and Mt Sanford Rd. The footbridge is very narrow, with a railing on one side only. The barrier with a "nope" sign indicates that it is not for public use. Children at play might ignore the barrier and "nope" sign and possibly get hurt crossing to the other side. Did this footbridge require a permit? If so, was a permit issued by the town? At the very least, it's a potential safety concern.
  • Treadwell Hamden, Connecticut - Hamden
    Farmington Canal @ Treadwell, Haig have no bars up to prevent motorcycles, mopeds from entering the trail. Kids are always on the trail on mopeds and motorcycles, this is very dangerous for anyone on the trail not to mention illegal. I do not know if other bars are missing but the ENTIRE Trail should be checked for this before someone gets hit by an unlicensed child or adult on a moped or motorcycle,

    From Skiff St to Connoly Parkway the trash and debris along the Farmington Canal trail is disgusting. I carry a bag to collect what I can when I walk but this is out of control and beyond one person's ability. Property owners are plowing, blowing and dumping trash at the edge of their lots as well. It is too much even for one Earth Day clean-up and now is the time to get the trash out before the brush fills in and the poison ivy.
  • 470 Putnam Ave Hamden, CT, 06517, USA - Hamden
    Partially fallen tree leaning against utility lines. At about Farmington Canal Greenway mile 8.95.

    Garbage, dumping in playground parking lot

    Please let me start with a “Thank you” to our town officials and the Parks Recreation and Public Works Personnel for the upkeep of our town parks, that we are so proud of!
    Since I reside in the Meadowbrook Co-op, we consider Town Center Park as our backyard! Over the last few months, we have been walking our puppy around and through the park. Unfortunately with the lack of cleaning up after their dogs, the park now is showing the effect of dog owners, not doing their part! Many individuals are either unaware or just don’t care and the park has become a mind field of hazards, which will also be more of a concern after the winter season!
    Would it be possible to send out a press release or place signage at the park to help reinforce the town ordinance, relating to this growing problem. A posting and Clean-up Station(s) with bags, (similar to Brooksvale) would be most appreciated!
    1. It shall be unlawful for any person to allow or permit any dog to defecate upon any sidewalk, public street, median divider within public streets, grass or paved strips between streets and sidewalks, public parks and other public property, unless such person shall remove all feces so deposited by such animal immediately before leaving the area of the defecation.
    Again, thank you to our town officials and personnel for the fine job of maintaining our local parks. I would be more than happy to share any other needed information to minimize the lack of consideration and help with having better compliance, relating to this issue.
