The Parks and Recreation Department (203-834-6234) approves the renting of athletic fields for private interests. Wilton residents or firms may use most of the playing fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, and playgrounds for free.

There is a charge for using Merwin Meadows on Lovers Lane, since it has a swimming pond and requires supervision. You should make reservations for renting or using any athletic fields at least one month in advance.
