Although I'm a Connecticut resident, I'd never heard of Wickham Park and I suspect I'm not alone. This may be the best garden park in Connecticut, and it's easily the finest park in the Hartford metro area. Wickham Park isn't a state or municipal park....More

Stopped by here on a whim and I’m glad I did! There are many gardens and things to see. Everything was beautifully maintained. There is a $5 entrance fee for CT residents on weekdays.

There is relaxing garden walks with koi ponds and open fields surrounded by forest to enjoy. There are also tennis courts and volleyball pits for some active "relaxing" as well. A good sized place if you just want to relax or participate in some sports.

Yes but the dogs have to be on a leash and you have to pick up after them. Also don't think they are allowed in the bird area.
