After over a year and TONS of extensive clean up, Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden has finally been re-opened to the public.
After the tornadoes hit in May 2018, the park had thousands of trees down, blocking paths and re-shaping the main trail.
The cost of restoration work totaled $735,000, 75 percent of which is expected to be reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The park was already one of the most popular spots in Connecticut for a relatively easy hike with a great pay off at the top, and now that it’s open again for summer, it will be full for sure.
If you’re interested, it’s free for state residents.
