Engage our neighborhoods, our schools, the business community and the City of South Portland in park and trail use, open space protection, trail building and land stewardship.
Encourage and support the acquisition of the priority open spaces identified in South Portland’s Open Space Strategic Plan.

The Trout Brook Nature Preserve
Sawyer St. Trailhead is Complete!
The trail from Boothby Avenue and from Providence Avenue to Sawyer Street is finally complete. Along the way, you follow one completely new section of trail, cross two new bog bridges and the new 45' Trout Brook bridge and you can even take a load off on two new granite benches. We will continue to plant native plants and wildflowers and remove invasive plants.
Big Thanks go out to the City, our volunteers, Portland Trails and private contractors for their help on the project.
Clark's Pond Clean a Big Success
A group of high school students from the Interact Club help pull 40 tires and 5 Bags of trash from the Clark's Pond Nature Area.
The Maine Mall Wellness Loop is Ready!
The City of South Portland has improved sidewalks around one third of the perimeter of The Maine Mall. The SPLT has certified the quarter mile marks around the 1.5 mile route. The sign posts and mile marker signs, shown above, have been installed.
The South Branch Trail has been Improved
The loop trail passes by the newly improved South Branch Trail, so if you are ready for a creekside stroll, give it a try as well.
The South Branch Trail has been resurfaced and improved with a kiosk and picnic tables. The trail is located on Philbrook Avenue across from the JC Penneys entrance to The Maine Mall. We used stone dust to hold off the surrounding grass and will later top dress this with trail mulch to better cushion your feet.
