Parks

***The Vietnam Bridge will be closed for an indeterminate period of time beginning January 13th.

We have been able thus far to close and reopen it daily, but unfortunately the area being worked on requires more significant structural reconstruction and it is not possible to provide access until it is rebuilt.

We will update everyone when we are able to reopen it.

Reopening Guidelines

All Trumbull parks are open from 9am-5pm daily (dawn to dusk). 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.

 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 Dave Durand at ddurand@trumbull-ct.gov.  Certain fields are available to permit holders only. Residents may request a free permit for a Town tennis or pickleball court during the summer months (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.

As of December 1st, 2020, all town fields are currently closed to recreation.
