Dark Sky Wildwood

Night Sky

Coming Soon to Wildwood - Promoting Dark Sky Places!

The City will be pursuing Urban Night Sky Place designations for several of its parks, recognizing them for best practices in minimizing light pollution in an urbanized environment.  Events and activities celebrating Wildwood's night sky are being planned, and will begin this fall.  Stay tuned!

  • Dark skies increase public health.
  • Dark skies protect bird migratory patterns.
  • Dark skies conserve energy.
  • Dark skies allow for star-gazing.
