“Beautiful, Peaceful Waters”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

I would call this place a gem. Close to Downtown New Haven and both I95 and I91 this place is somewhat hidden from the city commotion. If you have a vehicle registered in New Haven, you don't have to pay the entry fee but, if you don't it will have a range from $20 to $30. For buses and RV's there is a higher fee. It has a spacious parking area. The beach is as calm, peaceful and beautiful. Well maintained by the park crew (kudos to them) and with different things to do. The beach, the green area, a carousel, a small water park, the lighthouse, and the scenic view. Also, there is an area for different types of activities (weddings, etc.). For the carousel there is a very small fee. Oh, and did I mention that there are a few areas with grills for a great BBQ.

“A park for all seasons”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Summer: beach fun, splash zone, playground, picnic area (costs to enter, though)
Winter: holiday light festival well worth driving through
Spring and Fall: free admission, walk along the beach, absolutely beautiful

The Carousel is absolutely fantastic - I'm hoping to hold some sort of event there one day.

“Quite”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

My boyfriend took me here by accident and it ended up being a great date. We ordered pizza and ate it by the water on one of the picnic tables. Water is always a great relaxing mechanism.

“Rent it for your next event or party”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

I love the Lighthouse Point Park and the carousel is beautiful. The room is amazing and many people enjoy their wedding receptions there.

The beach houses a water splash park, basketball hoops, swings and plenty of sand to sun.

There are many spots to picnic, walk and frolic.

Great place for the Spring and Summer. The winter brings the holiday light display you drive through in December.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This beautifully restored carousel is absolutely stunning. Parks department workers worked long and hard to preserve it before Sandy struck, and we locals can only thank them for saving this local landmark (it's at the beach).
