Resident stickers for Blish Park

Marlborough residents are required to have a current town sticker in order to have access to Blish Park or to use the town’s Transfer Station. Stickers may be obtained at no cost for vehicles registered in Marlborough. To obtain a sticker, please visit the Town Clerk’s office or complete an application form (available on the Town website) and return it to the Town Clerk’s office with a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Upon verification of the vehicle’s registration, your sticker will be mailed back to you at no charge.

Please call the Town Clerk’s Office (860-295-6206) or the Transfer Station (860-295-6218) with any questions. All stickers must be adhered to the lower left corner of the car’s windshield to be accepted; loose stickers are not valid.


Any vehicle parked at any Blish Park lot without a valid sticker is subject to ticketing, regardless of residency.


Temporary parking passes for Blish Park are available to active participants of the triathlon series obtainable from the Parks and Recreation or Town Clerk's Office, and must be applied for in person.


Parking passes are not for sale and are not available to non-residents

Pavilion Reservation Process & Form

Reservations begin January 1st.  As always, you MUST BE a resident of Marlborough to reserve the facility and it is a first-come, first-served for dates.  A certificate of liability insurance for one million dollars naming the Town of Marlborough as additional insured is required for ALL reservations.  It can be provided to us from your own insurance or purchased from TULIP enter code 0501 - CT0 (that is a zero) where it asks for code.  The town does not receive any compensation from this program.  This is strictly for assistance and quite often is cheaper than other policies.
A reservation will be held for 72 hours - Your reservation will only be secured once a 50% deposit and a copy of your insurance is received.  Both are REQUIRED to secure your date. Pavilion Reservation Form
