More than two years in the making, a major habitat restoration project along the Norwalk River in Wilton Center is set to begin Aug. 19, according to Jeff Yates of Trout Unlimited. The project will last about 10 days and a portion of Schenck’s Island Park will be closed to the public. People will still be able to enter from the parking lot and the footbridge, and areas will be marked to indicate closures during construction.
The environmental affairs department encourages residents to explore Wilton’s other parks. Some nearby include Bradley Park and Cherry Lane Park.
