Lake Compounce has announced it will no longer open on May 2 as planned, due to coronavirus concerns and the park’s shutdown of preseason preparations.

The Bristol Connecticut park said it’s too soon to decide a new date, but that they are committed to opening the park as soon as safely possible.

“Our highest priority remains the safety of all of our Team Members and Guests, and we’re closely following the guidelines set forth by federal, state and local government officials and health experts. Because of the shutdown of preseason preparations, we know we will not be ready to start our season as normally planned on May 2. While it’s too soon to confidently provide an opening date, please know we remain committed to opening Lake Compounce this summer for you to enjoy as soon as safely possible.”

Lake Compounce is automatically extending 2020 season tickets through the end of June 2021 as a result of the delay, free of cost. Ticket holders will later have the opportunity to extend their passes through the rest of that season at a reduced rate, the park said.

“Passholders will be able to extend their 2021 Season Pass to cover that entire summer, or all the way through December 2021, at a reduced rate.”

Management is directing park-goers to the Lake Compounce website and social media accounts for updates moving forward.
