nnabeth Lippman Park (Chaffin Pond)



The property is 123 acres of woodlands and wetlands with a 10 acre pond. The Windham Town Council encouraged and endorsed the purchase of this property with the provision this would be made into a Community Park. The land was purchased in May of 2011 by the Town of Windham. Prior to the land purchase the Town of Windham leased the property from the Portland Water District, formally known as Chaffin Pond. Presently there is a trail that loops around the pond for hiking and snow shoeing, there is also a Story Walk very suitable for the youngest hikers.  Fishing is also a popular activity on the property. The Windham Parks & Recreation Department is working with the existing trail system to expand the public access to the pristine property.
