“Never Thought About This Before”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

I never thought to go to Sherwood Island. Had some relatives over last week and we decided to explore what was there. I was surprised to see a very calm, restful environment with a Nature Center. I know the 9/11 Memorial is there and should visit it. I learned that I need to pay attention to what we have here.

“Very nice beach for all ages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Visited Sherwood Island recently and forgot how nice it was. Close enough from the city and so relaxing. Bathrooms were decent and not too crowded for a Sunday (4th of July weekend) Only downside is the geese poop and have to agree it's a very rocky/shell filled beach. **Bring your watershoes. Overall great beach/bbq day! $24 for out of state vehicles not bad when you have a packed car.

“Nice park, large beach area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

I visited this park recently with some friends. We didn't go to the beach, but the beach, facing Long Island Sound was large, with lots of clean-looking sand. The park itself was beautiful, with nice views of the Sound, and plenty of room to stroll around. There's also a large pavilion with many tables, if protection from the elements is needed. There's also a region marked is a "Model Aircraft Area", with a mini landing strip. Someone was flying a plane when we were there. Overall, a very nice park.

“Even beautiful off season”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I think this is an underused facility off season, what an asset to lower Fairfield County. It's a wonderful place for a walk, riding bikes or even to pay your respects at the 9/11 memorial and under the pavilion.

“Probably Should Come Back In Summer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

We live in Norwalk and we visit SI several times during the year. Definitely a summer attraction. It was FREEZING cold the day we went, and agreed that we would come back when it was June or July. We like the 9-11 memorial. Watch out for goose poop!

Recommended stay: 2-3 hours IN SUMMER!!!
