The place we know as Cold Spring Brook Park was deeded to the Weston Community Club (now the Weston Community Association Inc.) in 1950 as a memorial to Weston residents who served in World War I and World War II and dedicated to the memory of Lewis and Emma Wilder Parkhurst. The focal points of the park have been the two dams, the lower of which was breached in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene.
In an effort to better understand the history and issues of the dams in the park, The Weston Conservation Commission has prepared a report using Town Meeting reports, Conservation Commission minutes and other available records. The report includes Conservation Commission suggestions to the Weston Community Association regarding those structures.
