St. Albans' Hidden Gem: Why Hard'ack Has Captivated Locals for Generations

What do you love most about St. Albans, VT? Is it the beautiful views, the friendly folks, or the traditions that just feel like home?

In our newest episode of The American Dream TV, with host Tamithy Howrigan, we explore a cherished St. Albans landmark that has been a hub of activity for decades, for both kids and adults.

Hard'ack holds a special place in the hearts of residents and locals alike. For generations, it has served as a hub of outdoor recreation and communal gatherings, embodying the essence of Vermont living. From family picnics to sledding adventures, Hard'ack has been a playground where memories are made and traditions are cherished.

During our visit, we had the pleasure of diving into the fun at the annual Winter Carnival held at Hard'ack. The day was filled with sledding adventures, delicious food, live music, and spectacular fireworks. And of course, who could forget the highlight of the event - the Duct Tape Derby, a creativity-fueled sledding race that never fails to entertain.

We had the opportunity to chat with Kelly Viens, director of the St. Albans Recreation Department, who shared insights into the multitude of outdoor activities and recreation programs offered at Hard'ack. From skiing and snowshoeing, to hiking and swimming at the newly installed year-round city pool, there's something for everyone to enjoy amidst the stunning natural beauty of this outdoor playground. The Greg Brown Lodge onsite, along with its snack bar, provides a cozy retreat for visitors to relax and recharge after a day of adventure.
