COVID-19 and Mask Requirement: To protect the health of those who live, work, and visit national parks and National Park Service (NPS) facilities, and in support of President Biden’s Executive Order on Protecting the Federal Workforce and Requiring Mask-Wearing, NPS is immediately implementing a mask requirement for employees, visitors, partners and contractors. At Weir Farm National Historical Park, face masks are now required in all park buildings and facilities. Masks are also required on NPS-managed lands when physical distancing cannot be maintained, including the Weir Pond trail. The public can find information about the requirement on the park website and on signs throughout the park. In addition, the following public health measures and temporary closures remain in effect:

  • All buildings and facilities are closed for the off-season. Please plan accordingly as there are no restrooms and no drinking water available. Park grounds and trails are open sunrise to sunset.
  • Short visits are encouraged so that as many visitors as possible can enjoy the park, get outdoors, and recreate responsibly.
  • Parking is limited and groups in 3 or more cars require a reservation. Small group visits (up to 10 people) permitted by reservation – call 203-834-1896 x11

As conditions are subject to change, visitors should check the park’s website and social media channels for details on operations before they visit.
