  • Awesome place for picnic. Awesome place for family and kids. They have a good collection of birds in their aviary. Kids will really enjoy it. They have slides and play area for kids. It has a nice hill view of whole Hartford and Manchester area. Awesome at sunset.
  • I love their aviary! This place is impressively gorgeous every day of the year. Beware though, parking can be difficult at times when the front gate is closed off. Walking in is welcome, but not as easy as it seems as there is limited street-side parking.
  • I am so happy with Wickham park! The park is absolutely gorgeous! The Emerald Room was unbelievably elegant. Beyond perfect for a small wedding. Pam was wonderful, she helped so much during the planning process. There was a mistake made with our payments, but we paid with checks instead of cash making it was easy to track, so once we caught on and alerted Pam she fixed everything readily. My second complaint was the night of our rehearsal dinner. Somehow during unpacking my MOH's car her keys got locked inside along with all our dresses crammed on top of each other! The park closed at 6:30 and at 6:10 the park ranger was kicking us out while we were on hold with AAA. He was rude and not helpful at all about what was going on. It was definitely a strange situation, and we live an hour away so we couldn't run home and get the spare, but to raise his voice and repetitively say he didn't care was unnecessary in my opinion. He could have at least gave us until actual closing time! Anyways, I don't want that one staff member to effect how I feel about the park, it was a magical place to have my ceremony/reception and I definitely recommend it to anyone!
  • This huge park is always maintained well & kept clean. It has beautiful hiking trails. It brings me wonderful memories of when my nephew was a toddler. I used to bring my parents, my parrot and little dog along for a nice picnic.
  • My daughter Kaitlyn was married here almost two weeks ago. I live across the street. Beautiful park. It was originally a family estate and is between two towns East Hartford and Manchester. The wedding was held in the English Garden beautiful. The wedding was in the gazebo ninety degree day
