“Lake Front”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

It is a very nice place to walk, if you have children there is a playground as well. Can buy snacks and just enjoy the day at the beach.

“Lovely park to walk, picnic, play, swim....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is one of the nicer maintained parks on Lake Erie Shoreline. Much , much better than the beach areas around Ashtabula. There are ample parking( in different areas) picnic tables, grills, restrooms (for the most part are usually maintained...). There are showers and foot washes in several areas, and a playground. There is an abundance of shaded areas with picnic tables. There is also a changing area in the restrooms at the main pavilion. There are pavilions to reserve and a beach side ice cream, sandwich , snacks, drink vendor. The beach is very large and there is a wooden walkway down to the beach. It is a great place to walk and look for beach glass. Since it is Lake Erie , the condition of the water can very greatly, but today the water was very clear. On June 23, there were signs posted that there are no Life Guards. Not sure why they eliminated the Life Guards. There are emergency call boxes along the walkway.

“Beautiful Park & Beach on Lake Erie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Every time I visit Conneaut, I spend as much time as I can at Township Park. It is so beautiful. Whether I am just sitting in my car at the Bluffs, overlooking the beach and Lake Erie, watching families enjoy the playground (still has much of the classic equipment!), enjoying the beach, or attending an event, Conneaut Township Park is my favorite place to be in the city.

Township Park is not just a summer thing. Many people enjoy tubing on the snow-covered hills in winter. The fall leaves put on a show in the fall. And, of course, there is always the beach. With its well-maintained boardwalk, it is easy to go out to the water just about any time of year.

Many of events are held at the park, including the very popular D-Day Conneaut. This full-on reenactment (complete with planes, watercraft, and costumed participants) brings tens of thousands of visitors every August.

In addition to the beach, the bluffs, and the playground, there are tennis and basketball courts, picnic areas, a small walking trail, and a huge covered pavilion with picnic tables. A great concession stand runs during the summer.

On my last visit, I truly enjoyed watching the wildlife on the beach. Lots of seagulls and swallows swooped across the sky as we watched a kite surfer in the distance.

“So Much Sand and Water and More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Lovely rolling treed terrain with a top or a hill Lake Erie lookout point. Huge sandy beach, and best of all, Lake Erie. Food vendor. Pavilions, kids play area, Picnic Table and more. Quite (but not too much so) and friendly, in a friendly small city.People move here from bigger cities.
