The Woodward Point Accessible Trail Project
Help make this beautiful coastal preserve more accessible!
Fundraising update: All gifts and pledges will be matched dollar-for-dollar! Read more below about our efforts to provide a trail that welcomes all visitors, regardless of ability.
Let’s make Woodward Point accessible to all
We want community members of all abilities to enjoy the beauty of Woodward Point. Our goal is to build an accessible trail and parking to facilitate access for all visitors, including people who need a level surface to walk, use a wheelchair, or push a stroller.
Trails create active, healthy, and happy communities. Everyone deserves the enjoyment of this special place!
How this place became open to the public
Maine Coast Heritage Trust and Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust conserved Woodward Point in 2019, realizing the previous landowners’ dream of permanent protection for the property’s open space, scenic beauty, and extensive ecological values.
Lots of love from locals
Just minutes from downtown Brunswick, Woodward Point is a cherished destination for walking, nature observation, kayaking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Trails cut across several large fields, through woods, and down to the shore. Stone steps at four locations provide access to the water—including at a hand-carry boat launch site not far from the parking lot.
Your gift in action
When you give today you will help:
- establish a level, half-mile accessible trail with a stone dust surface
- make Woodward Point safe and accessible to more people
- expand local outdoor opportunities for people of all abilities.
Thank you for considering a gift to help us enhance this community preserve!
