Westmoor Park

Welcome to Westmoor Park!

Westmoor Park is a self funded environmental education center operated by the Leisure Services Department of the Town of West Hartford, encompassing 162 acres.  Our demonstration farm, wildflower meadows, perennial gardens, woodland trails, and ponds are open to the public daily.  We also offer a wide variety of educational farm and nature programing for folks of all ages.

Westmoor Park is an environmental, agricultural and horticultural education center dedicated to generating awareness and appreciation for the natural world.  In 2023, it achieved accreditation as a Level I Arboretum.  

The park encompasses 162 acres and includes a diversity of natural habitats. A particularly popular attraction is the park's demonstration farm, which is home to a variety of barnyard animals. There is a large garden area devoted to seasonal flower beds as well as herb and vegetable gardens, and three miles of nature trails (one-half mile of which is handicapped accessible) that encourage visitors to explore the park throughout the four seasons.  

The education center at Westmoor Park features an exhibit area, a nature discovery room, and a heated greenhouse. There is also a spacious meeting room available for classes and community use.  

Westmoor Park is maintained by experienced staff with backgrounds in biology, natural sciences, and agriculture. Their commitment to quality interpretation has helped the park achieve its reputation as one of the finest environmental education centers in the state.

Dogs are not permitted at Westmoor Park, Picnicking is prohibited, and Bikes are not allowed on the trails. Groups of more than 12 must contact the office before visiting the Park.
