Come. See. Play. Frolic. Spend June At Lime Rock Park.
June is here and it's without a doubt one of the most enjoyable months to enjoy Northwest Connecticut and Lime Rock Park. The weather is warm, yet hasn't become full-swing summertime hot. The flowers have blossomed while the grass is green and lush.
There's plenty to do across the region. Shop the boutiques, galleries and farmer's markets in the area's villages or take a hike along the numerous trails, including parts of the Appalachian Trail. Nearby in Lakeville, families can frolic at Town Grove ("the Grove") located along the banks of Lake Wononscopomuc. The park is the perfect spot for a swim or reading a book on the sandy beach.
The month also brings a full calendar of events here at Lime Rock Park starting with the eEuroFest on Sat., June 9, 2018, and ending with a fireworks spectacular in advance to the Fourth of July on Sat., June 30, 2018. So pack your folding chairs and coolers. Bring you sunhat and your sneakers, and meet us here in the hills of Northwest Connecticut.
Here's just some of the weekend experiences you can have this June at Lime Rock Park:
