The problem my family had with our visit today was the litter and the filthy condition of the bathroom, which all point to the disrespectful visitors to what would otherwise be a nice little park. Trash on the beach, trash in the water - it's...More

Beautiful place to walk or to take a picnic, gorgeous views of Long Island Sound. The beach is really pretty. There is also a nature center open in season. Carload passes available.

If you visit this park in the fall or spring you are going to enjoy the place. It has nice paved paths along the shore and next to the grass fields. During the season they charge for parking and it gets pretty crowded and noisy.

It's main attraction is the 9-11 Memorial. Pulls at your heart strings and begs for reflection. Many easy to walk hiking trails. Beautiful Long Island sound views. Friendly people. They all said Hi. Pleanty of parking spots. Worth more than one visit.

This is a terrific Conn state park, with Ct's 9/11 memorial. You can enjoy the beach, the playfields picnic sites to have a terrific day and right off of Exit 18 of I-95

This is a peaceful state park with very moderate crowds and a great view. It's also nice in the off season, when the Connecticut weather suggests long walks on the beach without a plunge into the water,
