Weed Beach Park Master Plan, Darien, Connecticut USA

Share on:

Weed Beach is an extraordinarily valuable asset to the Town of Darien. Located along the Connecticut shoreline of Long Island Sound, this park offers both active and passive recreational activities.

In May 2005, the Town of Darien Parks & Recreation Commission retained GHD to prepare a Master Plan for Weed Beach Park. The Master Plan was for the upgrade and expansion of an existing, heavily used, 22± acre park facility that contains a public beach, light craft launch area, picnic area, tennis courts, paddle tennis courts, children's play area, a number of buildings, 250± parking spaces and undeveloped woods. GHD services for this project included participation in public meetings, public outreach, park design and implementation phase assistance.

The Master Plan implementation was complete in 2012.
