Community boathouse on the Connecticut River in Hartford.
This is part of the riverfront park system that runs for miles on both the Hartford and East Hartford sides of the river. The boathouse has been constructed in anticipation that the spring floods will flow through the lowest level. The park in which the boathouse sits will be flooded each spring, but it emerges unharmed when the water drains away. The riverfront has been re-engineered to give the floodwaters a place to go.
