The waterfront was interesting, but smaller than what we're used to in Mystic, CT. Easy parking and a nice walk. Pretty seating places perfect to eat a take-out lunch. The historical buggy ride begins here too

I was wondering if special permits were necessary for a wedding at the park? We are planning a small (under 20 people), simple wedding ceremony in June. Thanks in advance for any information.
