Nice family spot

Fun and educational for the whole family. Another Westport institution. Go for specific programs or for a picnic lunch outside on the lawn.

Have been many times. With kids I babysat and my grandson. Have always wished that the animal supply was more plentiful. But to their credit they are constantly improving. Also like walking the trails.

We attended a special viewing of the documentary "Gasland 2" at Earthplace. It was the first time that we ever heard of this wonderful natural spot in Westport.

Earthplace is just a great place to drop into for a weekend hike coupled with some lessons on nature. The indoor space is really good for younger kids - and the trails outside are perfect for burning off a little energy!

We are privileged to have this wonderful place around the corner from our home. A little getaway from the daily routine and nice paths to walk on to visit nature and animals. We have also acquired their help with injured wildlife in the past. Nice walk to and through their trails many times. Recommended for everyone!

So impressed that Earthplace has 62 acres of open space and 2 miles of lovely walking trails. We loved seeing the birds of prey that are part of the permanent collection of injured birds. On the weekends it has a great playground for young children as well.
