What’s This On The New Haven Map?

This is a real puzzler. I’ve lived in the New Haven area 25 years but until looking at Google Maps never realized there was an obviously man made, perfectly straight, narrow body of water inside West River Memorial Park. It resembles an airport runway… if they were made of water!

If you know what this is and why it’s there will you please let me know? I’m stumped and don’t even have a clue who to ask.

  1. Wow..I lived in New Haven for 6 years and never knew that was there and I considered myself up on what New Haven has to offer….I would bet 99.9% of people that live in New Haven or familar with New Haven don’t know about this.

  2. I would have never guessed what it was. When i see it on Google Earth, I always thought it was part of some canal system
