Nice state park with beach. Changing rooms/bathrooms are decent. Beach is nice with tons of shells. Is very crowded on weekends in summer months. Visited once in off season and brought a dog. Entrance fee is a little steep on weekends. Lots of picnic areas with shade.

I love to take walks at Sherwood Island. And take my doggy when able. In the summer the beach is also great. Wish they could've improved the pavilion by now though.

I have been going to Sherwood Island since 1968, beautiful park on Long Island Sound. As are most beaches in Ct. the shore can be a little rocky. Pleanty of picnicing areas, a well kept bathhouse and pleant of parking all make for a great park.

I grew up going to Sherwood as a young child, all the way through my teens. I went for a while after I got married but then we got too busy for it. I decided to bring my almost 3 year old here this past summer, thinking she should experience some of the local beaches. I was shocked to see... More

This is a nice place to go for a relaxing outdoor stroll or walk your dog, but be aware that pets are only permitted for part of the year (they're not allowed during the summer season).

Go to Sherwood Island any time of the year and take a walk through the nature trails. If you're lucky, you may see an Osprey and even an Owl or any number of other beautiful birds. After that, take a walk along the beach and enjoy the wonderful salty air....it's just so relaxing!

Sherwood Island is a great place to spend a day at the beach, take a walk, or visit the Nature Center with your kids. We had so much fun on our first visit, we bought a season pass. Great to see our tax dollars going for this!

We live in Norwalk, so we visit SI regularly in all seasons. It is DEFINITLEY more of a spring or summer attraction. It is FREEZING in winter, the beach and snack bar are closed, and there is snow, ice, mush, and mud EVERYWHERE. It's better to come back in summer when it's warm and all the facilities are open and... More

We visited the park this morning. Had not been there in several years. It was a perfect summer day - 100% sunshine, warm temperature, low humidity and a pleasant breeze. A++ conditions. The tide was in. The waterfront is almost a mile long. On the east end is a fairly wide beach with what passes for sand in CT (this... More

Nice clean park with lots of space and grills for a family cook out. Everything was cool, well maintained grass, nice atmosphere, but the beach was very dirty. They SHOULD invest at least half of admission's fee ($22 for out of state) to help in the cleaning of the beach.
