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.
