1329 Middle Turnpike West, Manchester CT 06040
Note: Wickham Park will be open for us any time after 8:45 AM, with a fee of $7.00 per vehicle. This is a beautiful private park, not supported by any town or state funding.
With over 25 acres containing 10 different theme gardens, this park offers our painters an amazing opportunity. For instance, the English Garden contains three “garden rooms,” designed to have flowers in bloom all season long. The staff at this park welcome us and are very helpful; there are bathrooms, and parking through the park. The trees are in bloom, lots of early flowers, as well as many columns, pergolas, and fountains. Also, don’t miss the aviary with its gateways, peacocks and various waterfowl.
There are two items that we need to keep in mind:
An event scheduled on the hilltop Cabin Garden area at noon, so anyone painting there must plan to exit by 11:30 so that area can be prepared.
The oriental garden will be unavailable from 10 – 11:00 AM.
Our table will be located at the first parking lot, please sign in with your name and phone, and your email if you are not receiving notices from us. I hope to see you there!
