Subject: Forge Pond Beach - Phase 1 Improvements
The Town of Westford Parks & Recreation Department is in the process of making infrastructure improvements at Forge Pond Beach. Improvements under this project will focus on construction of an accessible playground; installation of accessible pedestrian pathways; reconstruction of the parking area; drainage improvements; and installation of appropriate site furnishings, including benches and picnic tables.
The department recently conducted a public bidding process to secure a contractor. We anticipate construction will begin in the fall of 2019 and continue through early summer 2020. As a result of these improvements, FORGE POND BEACH WILL BE CLOSED TO PUBLIC ACCESS FOR THE DURATION OF CONSTRUCTION. (Limited accommodations are being made for crew operations.)
This project is made possible by the support of the community, including 2019 Annual Town Meeting, Community Preservation Committee, Board of Selectmen, Planning Board, Conservation Commission, Parks & Recreation Commission, and State Representative James Arciero. The Parks & Recreation Department appreciates your patience and understanding as we work to complete these improvements. Please reach out to us at (978) 692-5532 with any questions.
