HAMDEN – Hamden’s unique Sleeping Giant State Park has finally re-opened to the public for the first time since last year’s destructive tornado. The park closed on May 15. 2018 and became available to visit this past June, allowing hikers to return to their favorite trails.

The park’s repairs totaled about $735 thousand, according to the press release. The good news, though, is that the emergency management agency is projected to reimburse roughly 75% of those expenses. 

Although the Sleeping Giant will never be the same, the Hamden surrounding community can rest assured that everything possible was done to return Sleeping Giants State Park to its original condition.
