Tick Advisory  

Wickatunk Recreation Area  

Named after the Lenape word for “finishing place,” Wickatuck Recreation Area offers 71 acres of fields and forests. Established in 2010, the site is home to the former Marlboro Airport and has recently acquired the Spring Valley section. Since its initial acquisition, the Park System has cleared remnants of the airport and is preserving the Airport Meadows section as open space. With its protected habitats for woodland creatures and birds, the area is an ideal spot for nature walks.

Spring Valley

 

The Spring Valley section is an outdoor event center that offers a unique and attractive venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions as well as other social functions. A former winery and farm, this site’s bucolic feel provides guests a sense of elegant beauty and charm. The grounds are abundant with flowering quince, azalea, and hydrangea. For information on rates and availability, please contact Jacques Catering at 866-522-7837, ext. 304.
