“On June 19th, our goal is to welcome as many guests as possible to the park” says Sean Hayes, General Manager of Brownstone. “The more guests that enjoy a day of ziplining, cliff jumping, wake boarding, rock climbing and all the other fun activities Brownstone offers, the more we raise to help Connecticut childrens’ mentoring programs.” Last year Brownstone Park raised over $31,000 benefitting organizations including Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters, True Colors, the thirteen DCF one on one mentoring partners across the state and the Governors Prevention Partnerships which include 160 programs statewide. Brownstone gates open from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm.

Only want to spend Sunday? No problem, the park welcomes all Dads’ on Father’s Day. Brownstone encourages all to visit remembering that each visitor to the park on Saturday makes a difference in a child’s life with half of all gate fees donated to the mentoring programs.
Mentors and their Sponsored Child Play for Free
In addition to donating 50% of the gate fees on Saturday or June 18th, Brownstone is also extending free admission to participating mentors and their sponsored child along with free scuba diving, rock climbing, kayaking, snorkeling or wakeboarding lessons.
