Awsome place to visit, the trails are very well maintained, and for a small fee you get access to the inside. There is a plethora of information about the surrounding natural life with access to some wildlife inside. But the best part is the birds...More

Take your kids, take your friends to Westport's Earthplace! Nature walks, indoor exhibits, fun events. Get yourself an annual membership and keep going again and again, that's what most families do. Highly recommend!

This is an exceptional nature center with educational and just fun exhibits for all ages. The surrounding property is laced with hiking trails, through woods and fields, and near streams. The trails are mostly easy walking for young and old, and the scenery is beautiful.

This place is great to explore, learn, hike (easy trails!). Lots of classes & special events for children. Small "zoo" of rescued wildlife, interactive exhibits in the exhibition hall. Fun for anyone, alone or in a group, but especially good for families, children.

We took our grandchildren (ages 2-5) on a nature walk/scavenger hunt through Earthplace recently and what a surprise we all had. I've lived in Westport for 25 years, yet this was my first visit. The pastoral setting just off the Post Road is truly amazing....More
