Please read: Wickham Park’s opening day will be on May 22nd and we will be open daily from 11am-8pm. We are very happy to welcome everyone back to the park. Because of restrictions on facilities and in order to make things easier and safer for our guests and rangers we are reducing the vehicle entry fee to $5 every day of the week. The planned fees for 2020 were $7 for weekdays and $9 on weekends and holidays. Please bring exact change if possible. Due to State of Connecticut rules for opening, the Nature Center and all playgrounds will be closed. We ask everyone to wear masks, maintain social distancing and stay in groups of 5 or less. In an effort to reduce transmission risk all picnic tables and grills are unavailable for use because of the extensive cleaning requirements. Picnics on your blankets are allowed in appropriate areas. The concession stand will be open on weekends with a reduced menu, from 12 to 6 p.m. We will have 2 restroom facilities open, at the nature center and near the cabin. They will be disinfected hourly in following state guidelines. Hope to see you at Wickham Park soon!

Wickham Park is open 7 days a week from the first weekend in April through the last weekend in October. Find specific events under special events. Regular Park hours are from 11AM to 8PM with the exception of Cabin functions until 11PM. The Park will close for inclement weather providing there are no existing reservations. Always available for facility tours.
There are three sets of public restrooms in the park, and all are handicapped accessible. One is located near the Aviary and main playground, a second is located in Hickory Grove II, across from the Cabin, and the third set is a part of the Wickham Pavilion.
Upon entering Wickham Park, you will be greeted by a member of our Ranger staff at the gatehouse. He or she can provide information and directions for park activities. Rangers patrol the park in marked and unmarked vehicles and, along with other park staff, can be identified by their uniforms. They will be more than happy to assist you.
