Wickham Park is a non-profit, private foundation whose property extends into both Manchester and East Hartford, Connecticut.
The park contains 250 acres of gardens, open fields, woodlands, ponds, picnic areas, sports facilities, and other attractions.
Wickham Park, a non-profit foundation, was selected by our local Macy's store for the Love Your Park Program! Between March 7 and March 31, Macy's will match donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $250,000 to benefit local parks at participating stores nationwide. What a great way to show some love to Wickham Park!
