Visit Revitalized Southport Park at June 1 Grand Opening

Years of resourcefulness, creativity, and hard work will culminate on June 1 with the grand opening of the revitalized Southport Park, across from the Delamar Hotel.  
The park has a long history. It begins with a railroad project -- the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad had bought the property in the 1890s, and then in 1912 clear-cut the area to use the wood to pay for an expansion project.  

Southporter Milton Lacey purchased the cleared land from the railroad and in 1915, he and other residents formed the Southport Park Association and began restoration work.
