 Wolcott Park Plan

West Hartford has five major neighborhood parks conveniently located throughout town. Designed for the recreational enjoyment of people of all ages, the parks have playground apparatus, picnic tables, pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, athletic fields and restrooms. There are no grills available. You may bring your own charcoal grill - but please, clean up carefully afterwards. (Gas grills are not allowed.)

Four out of the five parks have outdoor pools. Summer pool programs include recreational and adult lap swims, and lessons for swimmers of all skill levels. The pools operate on a fee basis, and are open to the public from the end of June through mid August.  

SWIM LESSONS: This year there will be a change in the swim lesson registration process.  In an effort to allow more flexibility and better access to our programs, swim lessons will be available online up to the start date of each cycle.  We will no longer accept in person registrations at the outdoor pools. 

 The parks are available for rental during the months before and after the pools are open, making them popular places for individuals to hold meetings, parties, sports events and other functions. For  information on permits, please click here.

 The town offers short term and long term field permits for organizations to use town fields and parks.  A completed permit must be sent to the Leisure Services Manager for approval.
