Cummings Park Shore and Bank Protection Project

Cummings Park is located at the head of Westcott Cove in eastern Stamford.

The beach erosion control improvements at Cummings Park were constructed in three phases:

  • Approximately 1,000 feet of beach was widened to 125 feet by the direct placement of sand;
  • The length of the existing groin near the center of the beach was extended to 400 feet; and
  • The inshore end of the existing jetty at the western end of the beach was raised two feet to 13 feet.
  • The placement of sand was completed in October 1960, and the groin and jetty were completed in November 1960.

The cost of the project was $80,700.
