Walton Park

This park is complete with baseball fields, archery range, pavilion, bandstand, pond, covered bridge, and more!

Historic Walton Park located at the south edge of Litchfield recently celebrated its 75th Anniversary. Walton Park was the home of the first 1905 Chautauqua with plenty of activities, including speeches by William Jennings Bryan and Carrie Nation. Picnic tables, playground areas, horseshoe pits, and a pavilion with fireplace make this peaceful serene area a great place for a family gathering. Lake Litchfield, as it was first known, was filled in 1863 and is still considered a major reservoir by the Department of Conservation. The Lake allows only canoes, row boats and boats with trolling motors. Visit one of the County's most beautiful sites and enjoy a relaxing day of fishing, picnicking and family fun.
