“A visual retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

We visited today and loved it. The place is serene and the water just calm enough to keep you at peace. Good park to take your pets. We met families who came with their kids. Walk on the beach felt good. There is a basketball court just next to parking area. We spotted some lovely birds from the sitting area. The Long Island Sound looks fantastic from here. Visit during the weekend to stay amongst the crowds.

“Lovely park and beach.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Nice beach and walking path. Too crowded for my tastes - especially on the weekends. If you're white, you'll be in the minority.

“One of my favorite parks in the area, great for walking or beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

A great park to walk the dog or just walk. Paved paths, with separate sections for biking/roller blading. Large grass area for Frisbee, kites, etc.
Lots of picnic tables and a concession stand.
There are 2 beaches on LI Sound - Nice in the summer.
This is a town beach, and as such there is a fee for entrance during the summer months for non-residents.

“Cove park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Me and my family often travel there and walk and find it to be very peaceful. There is a tram that drives around and also you can travel on it. It is a safe park that has been there for over 30 years! It is great for biking, rollerblading, running, walking, and if you have kids it is great to have a volleyball game or even go to the sound waters conservation building and see the different types of sea life there is in cove!!

“Look up as there are parking fees-Nice park to walk around & with 4 legged friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Nice safe park. Been going here for over 20 years. Enough room in the park setting that you are not walking over each other. Not super super big thu. There is parking fees depending on the time of year. I would give the park a 8 out of 10!!
