Riverside Parks

HG&E opened three parks along the banks of the Connecticut River in South Hadley, Massachusetts in 2015.  Connected by beautiful walking trails, Lower Riverside Park and Texon Mill Park provide historic views of the first navigable canal system in the United States.  Also, take in scenic views of the Connecticut River and Holyoke Dam at Hadley Falls. 

Please respect the property and keep it clean for the enjoyment of others.  No dogs are allowed and no trespassing when the park is closed.
