Creating Westport’s First Community Park
“With over two miles of trails, 60 acres of natural habitat, carriage paths, meadows and ample parking, WLCT believes this property will become a community resource for all to enjoy.”
-Ross Moran, Executive Director
The Westport Land Conservation Trust (WLCT) has launched an effort to transform the 82-acre former St. Vincent de Paul property, on Adamsville Road, into a community park. The effort, Phase 2 of the project, follows WLCT’s February 2018 acquisition of the property in partnership with the Town of Westport. WLCT is now the owner of the entire 82 acres and the Town holds conservation restrictions over the property to ensure its forever protection. The transformation will reflect the property’s cultural history while preserving habitat, and connecting people to nature.
