The views are perfect and was not super busy. Parking is a nightmare so do not risk getting a parking ticket. I could see parts of Long island on a clear day. The bathroom was clean, I was actually pleasantly surprised.

A great park to do any kind of activity such as walk, ride a bike, read on a bench, look at the beach area and the ocean. Walk your dog. Order your lunch out of the food truck.

This is a great open space on the Long Island Sound. Dogs welcome on leash. Never swam at the beach but I just go to walk in the scenery.

Even on a drizzly day, this was very enjoyable and a great way to get one's bearings on the Sound. I adcvise bringing a map so you know what you are able to point to. Very well maintained and easy going people.
