Peterson Park - Wolcott CT View Larger Map Peterson Park, located on Mad River Road, is one of two recreation spots in Wolcott CT and is the only public park in town. My son insisted on going to a playground yesterday, and the closest one was at Peterson Park. I'm glad that I listened to the little man. It gave me an opportunity to explore the park, which I had not taken the time to do in my previous excursions there. Peterson Park has two pavilions; the pavilion closest to the park's exit is available for rental to both residents and non-residents of Wolcott CT. Besides the standard picnic areas, tennis courts and basketball courts, Peterson Park also has two full playground areas for children of all ages to enjoy, and is one of the few parks in the area that boasts a skateboard park f...

The Hobby Gallery, Wolcott CT,  - - - Where Imaginations Can Run Wild I recently had a toy repair to do on one of our grandson's favorite trucks, a broken wheel. I tried to fix it, but it was evident that a new wheel would be needed. I thought it was going to need to be thrown out, when he wasn't around, and then the light went on. I had not been to the Hobby Gallery in some time, but thought that just maybe I could get lucky and be able to find a replacement wheel that would be used on an RC toy.       The store front display was like a scene right out of a Christmas Catalog. A model train set with all manner of curves, elevation changes, homes, a simulated waterfront, and a running train. Protected from curious fingers by a plexiglass barrier, it was amazing to just watch the train do...

Wolcott CT Food Drive . . . Paying it Forward Saturday, March 26, on what should have been a pleasant Spring Day, was the Wolcott Food Drive to stock the Wolcott CT Food Pantry. The temperature was a balmy 38 degrees, and as we drove up to the Gazebo on the Wolcott CT Town Center green, cars were likewise driving up and stopping just long enough for the volunteers to collect the food donations. I had a little assistant with me when I went, our Grandson Raphael had his own bag of food to give as well. No handing it off to anybody for him. He brought it right up to the gazebo himself. The food drive was staffed by young volunteers from the Wolcott Activity and Learning Center, and there were enough of the young people of Wolcott all there to help. The food pantry will end up in a building...
