Exploring Engineering, Stormwater Design, and Trails in our Downtown

Discover Downtown Westbrook Board member, Portland Trails member, and Civil Engineer, Rhonda Forrester

Join us for a walking conversation about Civil Engineering and Urban Planning, with Discover Downtown Westbrook Board member, Portland Trails member, and Civil Engineer, Rhonda Forrester.

Curious about the engineering infrastructure working behind the scenes in our downtown? What do we, and should we, consider when connecting our neighborhoods? What’s so important about stormwater, anyway? Rhonda will share the planning and design necessary to create urban landscapes, and also talk a little about Westbrook history and the trails you can access right from downtown.

The meandering walk of just under one mile will start at the gazebo in Riverbank Park and our conversation will take us to the Cornelia Warren football field, and then along the river trail to the boardwalk.

Accessibility:

This walk will talk place on paved surfaces/sidewalks with curb ramps, however there may be some inclines or areas that are little uneven.

Starting Location:

We will meet at the park gazebo which is near the parking circle. There is street parking along Main Street.

Ending Location:

We will end at the start of the boardwalk, by the municipal parking lot.
