Discover Downtown Westbrook is partnering with Northeast Credit Union to provide free programs at Westbrook Common

WESTBROOK, MAINE, June 10With the help of Northeast Credit Union, soon to be Lighthouse Credit Union, Discover Downtown Westbrook and the City of Westbrook are continuing to create a space worth visiting by offering programs, increasing access to local businesses, and encouraging community.

Westbrook Common is a placemaking initiative, a people-centered approach to creating spaces for the health and well-being of our community. The goal is to continue to activate Westbrook Common to create a vibrant, memorable gathering space and provide events and activities that make people feel both safe and  a sense of belonging. Westbrook Common is the second placemaking initiative in Maine, and is modeled after successful projects in Congress Square Park in Portland, Maine and Bryant Park in New York City. 

Westbrook Common is in its second year of programming. Events have begun and are free to attend with the support of Northeast Credit Union beginning in May and continuing through October.
