Reopening Guidelines

Effective June 17th, all Trumbull parks will open from 9am-7pm daily. A valid park sticker is required for all vehicles. While the parks will be open, certain amenities will remain closed (see the grid below for details). Park Rangers and Police will monitor parking areas, walkways, and trails. We ask all of our residents to adhere to the social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and State of Connecticut.

Per the Governor’s Executive Order, athletic activities may resume during Phase 2, therefore our athletic fields will reopen on June 17th.  As a reminder, all users must adhere to the social distancing regulations mandated by the State of Connecticut. Please visit https://portal.ct.gov/Coronavirus/Reopen-CT for details. 

Organized recreational activities, such as team practices, scrimmages, games, and private or group lessons have always, and will continue to require a permit from Trumbull Parks and Recreation. This includes activities on tennis courts at the high school. For permit information please contact recreation@trumbull-ct.gov.  Certain fields are available to permit holders only- see the table below for more information. Residents may request a free permit for a Town tennis or pickleball court (limit one permit, per household, per week). Please see our tennis page for more details. 

Trumbull Parks and Recreation may close locations during or after a weather even in order to prevent damage to a field. Remember: “Don’t Look Up, Look Down”- Athletic fields with standing water or mud will be closed to prevent damage. Please check our Field & Facility Status page for the current status.
