About Pondicherry Park

Pondicherry Park is 66 acres of woodlands, fields, streams, and wetlands with many trails of varying difficulty. The Town of Bridgton owns the land, Loon Echo Land Trust holds a conservation easement on Pondicherry Park to ensure its natural resources are protected in perpetuity. Please observe all “use guidelines” when visiting in all seasons.


In 2012, Loon Echo Land Trust and Lakes Environmental Association partnered to protect 66 acres in the center of Bridgton. The land acquisition and trail construction was funded by many generous donors and foundations. The park was subsequently gifted to the Town of Bridgton, who now manage the trail network on the property with support from LELT and volunteers. If you'd like to get involved in the stewardship of Pondicherry Park, contact the Pondicherry Park Stewardship Committee.
