The park is absolutely beautiful, and a terrific place to visit. A group of us drove about 5 hours to play the disc golf course there which, with few exceptions, is a pretty darn nice course. Unfortunately we mistakenly assumed the course closed at dark, because we failed to read all the rules and regulations pertaining to the park, and... More

We attended an outdoor birthday party at the Park and it was gorgeous. Shaded area for eating and then open sunny spaces for playing games and enjoying a great summer day. you can reserve spots for your occasion. Rest of the park is beautiful for enjoying any time.

We went to an October wedding here at the lodge. The view from the outside chapel was absolutely stunning. What a great place for an outdoor fall wedding!

I always look forward to warmer weather so I can spend time exploring Wickham park. The different gardens throughout the park are well maintained. The aviary is fun see all the birds. If you are lucky, you'll see the peacocks with their wings spread. It's a nice way to spend the afternoon.

I used to come here all the time as a kid. There's a huge hill that's great for sledding, and it's a cool park to just walk through. You can get in for free if you park on the side and walk up the big hill. ;)

People are always surprised by the beauty of this hidden treasure in the Hartford Area. The Park is full of surprises with gardens, an aviary, disc golf course, and so much more. I love the hillside with the spectacular view of Hartford and the Connecticut River Valley.

A unique park that offers an exercise trail and a lot of green fields . Simple yet classic . I actually came to find out a friend of mine was once married there .
