Wing Island Boardwalk Project

The Town proposes to construct an elevated walkway from Drummer Boy Park to Wing Island.

Town Meeting adopted an updated Master Plan for the Drummer Boy Park property in Fall 2021 which details the proposed connection to the Wing Island property through the adjacent Town conservation land. The path will start at the eastern edge of Drummer Boy Park, lead across Town conservation land, then north to the Quivett marsh. A raised boardwalk will then head east to connect with the existing route across the marsh before turning north to Wing Island. The boardwalk will also maintain the current connection to the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.

The walkway will link Wing Island to:

  • Drummer Boy Park
  • Brewster Historical Society’s Windmill Village
  • Brewster Conservation Trust’s Windmill Meadow
  • Town Conservation Land
  • Cape Cod Museum of Natural History

Project goals include:

  • Improving accessibility for Brewster’s diverse population
  • Connecting six open space properties and their trail systems
  • Improving the user’s educational and recreational experience
  • Preserving the marsh and rare species

The Town held a public forum on Monday August 15, 2022 from 6.00-7.30PM to discuss this project, and provide residents with an opportunity to ask questions and make comments. The forum can be viewed here. A copy of the presentation can be found here.

Residents can submit written input on the design presented at this forum to boardwalk@brewster-ma.gov by September 2, 2022.  All feedback will be shared with the Select Board.
