Westcott Cove in Stamford is located one mile east of Stamford Harbor. It is separated from the harbor by Shippan Point. The waterway is used chiefly for recreational boating.
The project at Westcott Cove was completed in 1963. It consists of a 0.8-mile-long channel, eight feet deep and 100 feet wide, stretching from Westcott Cove to the municipal lagoon in Cummings Park.
