One of the greatest things about Hartford is how walk-able it is… There’s so many great things to do all in walking distance, and Damon Scott and the IQuilt Partnership want to show off some of the most fun features of the city.  Let’s step to it!

Start your walking!  Damon Scott at the Hartford Wolf Pack’s Sonar had lots of fun at Winterfest at Bushnell Park, and now they’re walking their way to the XL Center.  That jaunt only took 0.2 miles (823 steps), which is a 5 minute walk.  And the XL Center not only features a wide variety of concerts, performances and more great events, but it’s the home of the Hartford Wolf Pack!

Read more on the iQuilt Plan:

The iQuilt is a culture based urban design plan for Downtown Hartford. Downtown Hartford is an unusually compact historic district packed with more than 45 cultural assets and destinations within a 15-minute walk: museums, performance spaces, historic landmarks, modern architecture, and public art.

The iQuilt Plan links those assets with a vibrant and innovative pedestrian network. Its centerpiece is the GreenWalk, a one-mile chain of parks and plazas connecting the gold-domed Capitol in Bushnell Park to the waterfront of the Connecticut River.

The iQuilt Plan has worked on design concepts for the City’s infrastructure and private property that emphasizes and enhances the iQuilt’s overall goals.  In addition, the iQuilt Partnership has developed an event that invites people to see Hartford in a new way.  The festival, Envisionfest, Connecticut’s Capital City Festival, has begun to change perceptions of Hartford by stimulating the senses through culture, innovation, imagination and ingenuity. The iQuilt Partnership also works closely with the City of Hartford to produce Winterfest.
