“Nice place. A little expensive if you don't live in New Haven.”

Carousel at Lighthouse Point Park
Reviewed June 9, 2013

It seems like a nice place with a beautiful lighthouse and a historic carrousel. If you arrive early you can find a bench-table combination to sit and put your food in the large picnic area. The beach is very nice with clean and fine sand. There is a splash area for children, which is also very nice.
Admission is $20 per car to get in the park. It is free if your driver's license has New Haven as your home address.
The day my family and my relatives went there it was a beautiful day, sunny, in the low 70s and not windy. I was not too crowded, maybe because of the admission price.
It made me feel a little uncomfortable to see some hobo-looking people picking up cans and bottles nearby. Be careful.

Great for engagement pictures or picnic or. Day at the park... Anything really... There was a wedding in the carousel house when we were there... Would love to go back when it is a little warmer but it is a nice place to go anytime if year

Lighthouse Point is justly famous for its namesake lighthouse, beautiful beach and historic Timothy Murphy carousel that has been beautifully restored. As for the people enjoying the park these are the residents of Geater New Haven who reflect the diversity of urban America. A wonderful place.

Evening wedding in late August was beautiful, although very hot. They need to add fans to circulate the air better. Otherwise, the wedding was perfectly sited! Very beautiful!
