On behalf of the City of Bristol, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the City of Bristol's official website! Bristol is probably best recognized as the home of ESPN. We are also home to Lake Compounce, America's oldest still- functioning theme park. Our museums include the New England Carousel Museum, the American Clock & Watch Museum, the Imagine Nation Children's Museum, Bristol Military Memorial Museum, and Bristol Historical Society Museum.
Bristol's vast park system includes Peck, Page, Rockwell, Brackett, Veteran's Memorial Boulevard and many more. To enjoy nature and conservation, visit the Barnes Nature Center, or Indian Rock Nature Preserve. Each year in August, Bristol hosts the Little League New England and Mid-Atlantic Regional playoffs at the Giamatti Little League Center. Bristol is also home to Muzzy Field, one of the oldest ballparks in the United States. The summer of 2015, Muzzy Field will host the Bristol Blues collegiate baseball team.
Bristol was ranked 84th in Money Magazine's 2010 "Best Places to Live'. In 2013, Hartford Magazine ranked Bristol as Greater Hartford's top municipality in the "Best Bang for the Buck" category. It's an exciting time for Bristol. Bristol is a great place to work, live and educate your children.
My administration's goal is for this website to be a useful resource to all who visit this site. We hope to do that in a comprehensive and user friendly format. Please use this site as a way to connect with your city government and keep up to date on city issues that affect you. Get information about the services we provide; pay your tax bill, look up city meetings, sign up for city alerts and so much more. Thank you for visiting; we look forward to serving you!
