Love it
Aug 2019 • Family
Love the low tide hours. Calming. We use to live by there and love the foggy days as well. Winter time we would even go to enjoy the snowy beach. Want see more pictures : Instagram account : jubeijaxx

Beach day
Jun 2020 • Couples
Best beach in Fairfield county CT. I have lived in Bridgeport all my life and can definitely say it is the best beach in the area. The beachfront is very long with plenty of sandy areas to layout. If you like they have plenty of grills where families can enjoy the park. Tons of parking areas but do come early during the summer because it gets packed.
In addition to the beach they also have plenty of ball fields where young kids and adults can play baseball. Also plenty of space for our soccer leagues to play as well. I have even seen folks play críquet (sp?) as well. During the summer they install volleyball nets for groups to enjoy. Last but definitely not least is the bandshell which plays host to plenty of music shows and programs. You do need a Parking sticker to park in the park so be aware if you are a non-resident; you will be ticketed if you don’t have a perk permit.

Best CT beach
Aug 2019 • Family
Seaside beach is the best in CT. I’ve been going there since I was a child (40 yrs ago), and I have visited many of CT beaches. I have never found a beach that compares. Seaside has soft beautiful sand free of rocks and shells, which is very exceptional for Long Island sound. The water is clear with almost no seaweed in certain areas. And low tide is awesome for the kids. Large clean sandbars are perfect for running, playing, and building sandcastles. They also have a hot dog/snack stand which serves the most amazing fries. There’s an Italian ice cart on wheels and 2 ice cream trucks with different style ice cream (the kiddie stuff and the good stuff) They also have a splash pad and 2 playgrounds. I moved away from Bridgeport about 20 years ago, but I still take the 45min drive to seaside instead of going to the beach that’s 15 min away The only negative for me is price. Non-residents of Bridgeport have to pay $20 to enter. But if you have it, it’s worth it.

Beautiful place for a stroll
Jun 2019
This beautiful, clean park is an excellent place for a walk, to relax and enjoy the weather, or to merely enjoy the views of the Long Island Sound. Half of this park is sandy beach and the other half is a stone breakwater, but both halves are equally pretty. There are a few statues throughout the park of famous local people. There are also sports fields and places to picnic. Every summer they used to have a festival with live music and various artworks, although this ended a few years ago. Still, sometimes there's live music.

Great walking experience
Oct 2019
Relatively long (about 4 miles long) waterside paved walk. About half of it borders a beach and teh other half a stone breakwater. There are about 6 or 8 very interesting statues that are worth a look. One is of P.T. Barnum who was the mayor when the park was established.

The best
Sep 2019
This park is beautifully maintained. It’s a Long Beach and has plenty of room. The views are unparalleled. Whatever Bridgeport charges during the season, it’s worth it.
The beach is clean. I’m reluctant to be too enthusiastic because it would be sad if too many people came and it became overcrowded.

A gem in bridgeport, mostly undiscovered.
Sep 2019
I love seaside park it's 2 miles of beautiful beach. Lots of statues and art to see, and the best beach at low tide to walk out on to the sand bars. It's safe and huuuuuge. Lots of room to roam and places for privacy.

Great place to walk and relax
Sep 2019 • Couples
We hadn’t been in the park is at least 15 years. The walking area is great to get some exercise and appreciate the water views. There a great lighthouse if you willing to trek across the rock wall.
Looking forward to going back.
