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 on weekdays and $7 on weekends. 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 will be closed. We ask everyone to wear masks and maintain social distancing. Our picnic sites and pavilions are open and available for rent. 2 of our playgrounds are also open and we ask users to wash your hands before and after using the equipment. 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 regularly in following state guidelines.  Hope to see you at Wickham Park soon!
