Photo Challenge #350

All over town, open space is vanishing. Part of the Belta and Pabst properties on Bayberry Lane will be developed; so, apparently, will the Kowalsky land on Clapboard Hill.

But a relatively large bit of greenery sits undisturbed on the corner of Partrick and Crawford Roads. It’s been there for decades.

The open space — complete with a bench — was last week’s Photo Challenge. Marilyn Heffers, Alex Wennberg, Cathy Barnett and Derek Fuchs all knew exactly where it was. (Click here to see.)

Which raises a couple of interesting questions: It looks like a militia training ground — was that the original use?

How has it remained undisturbed?

And — only slightly off-topic — where does the odd name “Partrick” come from?

Now here is this week’s Photo Challenge. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.
