Weir Farm Implements Federal 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 from 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 three or more cars require a reservation. Small group visits (up to 10 people) are permitted by reservation–call 203.834.1896, ext 11.

As conditions are subject to change, visitors should check the park’s website and social media channels for details on operations before they visit. Other tips to recreate responsibly are available on the National Parks Service website. Park rangers are on duty to provide information, protect visitors and park resources and uphold this requirement.
