English: The Park River, sometimes called the Hog River, is a subterranean urban river that flows through and under the city of Hartford, Connecticut. It was diverted underground by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1940. The stated reason for this was to reduce the risk of spring seasonal floods which had occurred in the city due to the increase in surface runoff from urban development. The river is 2.3 miles (3.7 km) long.
