WITH NEIGHBORHOOD SUPPORT, SOUTHPORT PARK SPRINGS TO LIFE

One of the town’s least-known parks is gaining a new identity.

The Sasquanaug Association, a neighborhood group that owns Southport Park on Old Post Road, is working to transform the park as a gathering place for children and adults, with extended walking trails, viewing stations that overlook Southport Center and the Metro-North Railroad tracks, play stations, a nature information station, a lookout tower, a gathering place, a bridge and a more visible entrance.
