A small, downtown Hartford park overlooking Interstate 84 is undergoing a $10,000 beautification, starting Thursday, courtesy of insurer Prudential Financial Inc. and its employees.
Volunteers from Prudential and the Knox Parks Foundation were scheduled to begin work at 9 a.m. Thursday on Wexford Park, located on Main Street, atop the I-84 tunnel. Work will continue monthly until the project is finished, authorities said.
The park was established in the 1990s as part of a revamp of the Main Street deck above the freeway.
