History

In 2012, Loon Echo Land Trust and Lakes Environmental Association partnered to protect 66 acres in the center of Bridgton. The land acquisition and trail construction was funded by many generous donors and foundations. The park was subsequently gifted to the Town of Bridgton, who now manage the trail network on the property.
