Game Tables in Bushnell Park
A group of nine Greater Hartford volunteers have come together through Leadership Greater Hartford’s Quest program with the goal of promoting the iQuilt Plan and, more specifically, Bushnell Park. Since coming together in January of 2014, “iQ2” as they call themselves, has done extensive research into the possibility of adding game-top picnic tables to the landscape of Bushnell Park. After garnering interest and support from a variety of community stakeholders, including Downtown businesses, restaurants, community groups, and individuals, iQ2 has embarked on a campaign to raise enough funds to purchase several Kenneth Lynch and Sons concrete game top tables and complementing benches. The tables will be located just West of the Carousel, in a shaded grove of trees. To date, iQ2 is at about 70% of their goal, and have plans to close their fundraising efforts by this spring, with the table purchase occurring shortly thereafter. Please follow their social media campaign on Facebook at www.facebook.com/bushnelltables or on Twitter @bushnelltables.
