Visited Sherwood Island recently and forgot how nice it was. Close enough from the city and so relaxing. Bathrooms were decent and not too crowded for a Sunday (4th of July weekend) Only downside is the geese poop and have to agree it's a very rocky/shell filled beach. **Bring your watershoes. Overall great beach/bbq day! $24 for out of state... More

I visited this park recently with some friends. We didn't go to the beach, but the beach, facing Long Island Sound was large, with lots of clean-looking sand. The park itself was beautiful, with nice views of the Sound, and plenty of room to stroll around. There's also a large pavilion with many tables, if protection from the elements is... More

I think this is an underused facility off season, what an asset to lower Fairfield County. It's a wonderful place for a walk, riding bikes or even to pay your respects at the 9/11 memorial and under the pavilion.

We live in Norwalk and we visit SI several times during the year. Definitely a summer attraction. It was FREEZING cold the day we went, and agreed that we would come back when it was June or July. We like the 9-11 memorial. Watch out for goose poop! Recommended stay: 2-3 hours IN SUMMER!!!

It's a large, nice beach, with bath house. It can be crowded with New Yorkers in the summer. Off season, on Sunday morning they fly toy planes in the north eastern parkign lot.

It is easy to get to, has loads of parking, decent concessions (but would recommend bringing your own stuff anyway), is clean, and only $9 for CT residents.

This was the 1st beach we visited on a recent family trip to Connecticut. There was only fisherman and a couple of lifeguards on this beautiful New England day which was suprising as it is so close to NYC. The cost for out of state vehicles is $20! That was sticker shock for this midwest family. The beach has been... More

We were exploring the area and happened across this park. We were very surprised to have to pay $7 just to look around, but we were glad we did. The beach was a great place to walk and take a break.

Sherwood Island is an exceptional resource, with miles of multiple beach areas amidst many shade trees and picnic grounds, plus a small live animal Nature Center for kids, and plenty of convenient snack bars in season. On most days it is surprisingly private and underutilized. On hot summer weekends, however, it is filled with barbecue and picnic aromas and families... More
