Weston Town Information

Weston is a rustic town of sweeping fields, ponds, riverside vistas and thickly wooded forests.  The natural splendor of the area is undoubtedly a prime attraction to residents, but when coupled with comfortable commutes to urban centers, a solid school system and excellent recreational offerings, Weston is a choice spot for family living.

Residents carefully preserve the beauty of Weston.  Almost 30 years ago, a master plan was adopted to protect vast areas of land from development, and establishing a 2-acre lot minimum requirement for new homes on remaining lands.  As a result, the attractive homes of Weston are set on spacious lots and surrounded by natural beauty.  Residences include traditional colonials, charming farmhouses and streamlined contemporary designs.

The picturesque terrain also lends itself to outdoor and sporting pleasure.  1,400 acres of land comprise Devil’s Den, a nature preserve, which features hiking trails, picnic areas and a lovely pond.  The town recreation department hosts year-round activities for all ages, including ski trips, indoor swimming, athletic programs and innovative camps.  Water sports are enjoyed at the town swimming pond and the beaches of neighboring Westport, and a riding academy provides equestrian fun.  Several private clubs offer skeet and trap shooting and indoor/outdoor tennis courts & golf courses.

Weston’s children receive a strong academic foundation at a uniquely interconnected school complex.  Traditional course work is supplemented by a wide selection of culturally enriching programs, including music, visual arts, drama and stagecraft athletic leagues and interscholastic programs.  Special services are provided for students with particular needs.
