New Britain is a city of more than 70,000 residents representing a diverse population, which has made our community a great place to live, work and raise family.
Our city is strategically located in central Connecticut and is served by three major state highways: Interstate 84 and state routes 9 and 72. It is an ideal location for commercial, industrial and high tech firms as well as hotels, restaurants and service companies. Our park system is the best in the state of Connecticut with 1,200 acres that include a championship 27-hole golf course, professional sports complexes, and state of the art swimming facilities that provide recreational opportunities for people of all ages.
Cultural attractions abound, highlighted by the Museum of American Art, which has just completed a major expansion, the New Britain Symphony Society, outstanding community theater groups and, for sports enthusiasts, New Britain is home to the New Britain Rock Cats AA baseball team which annually plays host to more than 300,000 supportive fans.
New Britain offers exciting opportunities for those in search of a place to develop and grow. I encourage everyone to visit our city and to see first-hand the benefits of New Britain's geographic, cultural and economic opportunities.
