Located between the Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers, Lisbon is included in the Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley National Heritage Corridor (designated by Congress in 1994), popularly known as The Last Green Valley. The public has access to the Shetucket River, via a boat launch, for boating and fishing activities, as well as to 59 acres of land just off South Burnham Highway (Route 169) that includes baseball and soccer fields, walking trails and accommodations for picnics and small gatherings. While the town is only 16 square miles, its recreation and historic sites, bucolic setting, shopping and dining offer visitors a variety of opportunities to explore, shop, or just relax and enjoy.
