Westbrook The Suburb With It's Own Personality.
Westbrook is a great mix of city and country. Now primarily a suburb of the larger city of Portland, Westbrook itself has a growing business base and developing core downtown district. IDEXX Laboratories, a multi-national corporation, is headquartered in Westbrook. In addition to the downtown area, many of the city’s businesses are located within two industrial parks as well as in the area surrounding the Main Turnpike Exit 48.
Westbrook is a suburb of Portland with a population of over 17,000 people. The city has a total area of 17.33 square miles. It is served by interstate 95, U.S. Route 302 and State Routes 22 and 25. It is bordered by Portland to the East, South Portland and Scarborough to the South, Gorham and Windham to the west, and Falmouth to the North.
There are also large tracts of undeveloped land in Westbrook that are known to include natural resources such as deer wintering areas, wetlands and other wildlife corridors that have been recognized as important to the community.
Westbrook has over 35 miles of watercourses and approximately 30 acres of ponds. The Presumpscott and Stroudwater Rivers and Mill Brook are significant water bodies that define Westbrook’s character. Westbrook was once known as a mill town and these rivers provided water power for the early mills within the city.
