Yes. One of the ways we keep our park so clean is by having a Carry In/Carry Out Policy. There are no trash barrels in our park. We ask that our visitors take their trash with them. We understand that our larger permitted groups will accumulate a lot of trash and therefore if you would like trash bag removal at the end of your event, we ask that you leave your bags along the roadside adjacent to your picnic area for Park Staff to collect. Permit holders are responsible for picking up any trash generated from their event. Trash bags will be provided at your request. Failure to clean up your permitted area will result in a minimum fee of $100. The permit holder will be responsible for any damage done to the property during the term of the rental agreement.
Alcohol is only allowed in Endicott Park when served by a TIPS certified caterer or bartender with an approved One-Day Liquor License. Without a One-Day Liquor license, possession and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited.

All our farm animals are cared for daily by our trained Park Staff. They are vaccinated and visited regularly by a Veterinarian. Our Children's Barn offers visitors the opportunity to view domestic farm animals housed in an historic farm building. Both structured and informal talks are conducted by the Park Staff for elementary-level education in animal husbandry and the functions of a barn in the 19th century. One of the challenges of maintaining an active barnyard in a public park is developing an understanding that domestic animals are cared for differently than a household pet. If you have questions about these differences please ask a member of our staff.
Fires are not allowed without prior authorization.
