Essex Park and Recreational Facilities Open Effective June 17, 2020

Essex recreational facilities open effective June 17, 2020

The Town of Essex is excited to announce the re-opening of several of our recreational facilities. Effective June 17, 2020 the following are open for recreational play:  

  • Hubbard Park's Basketball Courts and Volleyball Courts
  • Grove Street Playground
  • Viney Brook Dog Park
  • Baseball Fields at Hubbard and Comstock Park are open for public recreation and Essex Little League play.  

We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work to adapt to many changes. With the steps that are in place we have a clear path forward to getting back to what we love doing. The Town mandates that all requirements in the governor's orders be followed. There are signs posted at each of our facilities that list guidelines to be followed while using the facilities. In addition, all Little League participants, coaches and guests must adhere to all Little League recommended guidelines.  

All these guidelines are designed to provide a safe environment for organized youth, adult athletic and recreational opportunities.

Any additional questions or guidance please feel free to contact Mary Ellen Barnes at
