Merwin Meadows park playdate, Aug. 12

With school beginning in just a few short weeks, Merwin Meadows and the Wilton Newcomers Club invite children and their families to a family park playdate on Tuesday, Aug. 12.

The newcomers club is organizing the 1-3 p.m. playdate, which will give children the opportunity to make new friends and catch up with old ones before the much-anticipated first day of school.

College Creamery will be stopping by to help everyone cool off during the course of the afternoon.

This event coincides with Miller-Driscoll’s New Student Scavenger Hunt, and parents are encouraged to stop by with their children after checking out the new school.

Those who are not already members of the newcomers club may visit its website,, to join. Members do not need to be new to Wilton, the club’s emphasis is on meeting new people.

Merwin Meadows charges a daily entrance fee for those who do not have a season pass.
