Bridgeport Connecticut, known as Park city as it has more than 1,300 acres of public park space, with each neighborhood having it’s own mini park to call their own. As of 2020 was reported having a population of 148,654 people, is also the fifth most populous in all of New England.
Some fun facts that highlight the great city of Bridgeport start with the The Greatest Showman P.T. Barnum who was a resident, built four houses, stationed his circus act during the winter season, and even served as the towns mayor in the later half of the 19th century. Not to mention the very first Subways restaurant opened right here in North End Bridgeport in 1965, coining the ever popular internationally known slogan “Eat Fresh”.
With each neighborhood having a park, perfect for picnics with your Subway meal, it should not come as a surprise that the Frisbee Pie Company was founded here crediting Bridgeport as the birthplace of the Frisbee- the still very popular toy that developed into a competitive game Ultimate Frisbee.
