August 19  - Annual Picnic at Wickham Park 11:00—4:00 (Grill open 12p.m.-2p.m.)
We are at a different pavilion this year that is very close to the old one. You will park at the same lot. The name is McGraft.

The Parrot Club will provide hotdogs, hamburgers, buns, soda, water, condiments, plates, flatware and ice. Please bring sides, desserts, etc. to share. Guests are welcome! If you bring guests please bring additional food.  If you want veggie burgers, please let Ron know.

Wickham Park has a $7 entry fee for admittance into the park on weekends.

As always feathered friends are welcome to come; please make sure their wings are clipped (recheck some may have grown in). We recommend harnesses for birds outside of carriers.

Also on site at Wickham Park:
Nature Center,
Oriental Garden,
Rhododendron Garden plus much more….

Wickham Park is located at 1329 West Middle Turnpike in Manchester, Connecticut and is easily accessible from Interstate 84.

From eastbound or westbound Interstate 84, take Exit 60 (Manchester-East Hartford). The park is about 500 feet west of the exit. Look for the stone gatehouse that leads to hours of relaxation and recreation.

From 291 East, take Exit 5. Take a right at end of exit ramp and proceed to second stop sign. Take a left onto Longhill Drive. At stop light take a left onto Burnside Avenue. Park entrance will be on the left in approximately 1 mile.
