Watch Connecticut park tourist trap
Jonathan Pait
July 8, 2003

A friend of mine was recently traveling back from a visit to a ministry in Canada. One the way down the east coast he and his family stopped at several locations. One location was "Sherwood Island - A Connecticut State Park." He turned into the gate because of a billboard advertising a special 9-11 Memorial.

After paying the necessary $14 to get into the main park, my friend went looking for the memorial. Finally they found it, and discovered their disappointment. You can check out some of the images here.

The park was in great need of repairs. Weeds were everywhere and the roads were in disrepair. The trees that were part of the Living Memorial were dying. Most sad was the fact that the American flag was tattered.

My friend also noticed trucks moving about the park with park personel. The question is why weren't they out of the truck making the park better and giving true honor to "thousands of innocent lives lost on September 11, 2001 and to the families who loved them."

No images came up. I hate to say this, but since I lived there for 9 years, I think the public parks are not a top priority in Connecticut. The people there think "seashore." . . .
