A lot of people have commented on the $30 fee for non-resident vehicles entering the park. Personally, I don't think the park is worth $30. However, if you just park half a mile down the road and walk to the park you can walk right...More

We came to see the lighthouse & brought out dogs for a walk. As a non-CT resident, we were charged $25 to enter the park. I'm sorry but it just wasn't worth it. The park & facilities are just OK. There are many other far...More

I've only been at Lighthouse Park for 2 weddings and an ALS walk. It's a stunning park nestled in New Haven. The facilities, the carousel, and the beach area are beautiful. There are restrooms and it's a delightful place to be.
