It was a cold and windy Fall day when we went to Seaside Park, but seeing the statues and the beach area was worth it.

Beautiful long beach with walking, biking and picnic areas. The beach is clean and safe. We have had many family get togethers and have always had a great experience. Bath houses are clean. I love going there and just sitting looking out at the ocean.

Seaside Park is a beautiful place along Long Island Sound. Parking "inside" the park is crazy expensive for non-residents ($50!) but there was street parking that was free. Beautiful place to walk- in the park and on the beach, and to swim and picnic.

A great park. Designed by Frederick law olmstead. Has beach, ball fields, plenty of parking and a skate park. City needs to take better care of this gem

A beautiful park on Long Island Sound, but we weren't willing to pay the high price as non-residents of Bridgeport. We were able to park nearby and walk into the park and stroll along the seawall walk.

it does not have a complimentary grill that will make it perfect but is near the university so I'm guessing why they cleaned it up better than what it use to be I dont really recommend people swimming in their water
