Thinking of family fun activities near South Windsor CT then you should definitely give Frisbee golf at Wickham Park a try.  I personally discovered Frisbee golf shortly after I moved to Colorado in 1998 and with very little money we were looking for some fun.  Then came Frisbee golf.  Frisbee Golf is a fantastic way to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and have a little fun with friends.   We all need more exercise in our lives anyway. My family and I moved back to CT in 2003 and found that Frisbee golf also made it to CT.  Wickham Park has a beautiful course and can be pretty challenging especially in the more heavily wooded parts.  If you are looking for a disc they sell or rent them at the gatehouse.  Most experienced frolfers have at least 2 discs one for long range shots and another fo...
