With a 1847 lighthouse adding to its charm, the Lighthouse point park is a beachfront park that is popular among swimmers and avid bird watchers. The park cover an area of 82-acres and is loved for its nature trails that twirl around the beautiful landscape.

An Antique carousel at the park built in 1916, is a piece of art in itself with hand-carved horses, miniature steamboats, sailing ships, lighthouses and mermaids. Owing to its vivid colour and art, the carousel is a favourite among children. The beautiful grounds along with the spacious picnic area, a bird sanctuary and the panoramic view of the Long island Sound and the coast of New Haven, pull you in a world of the simpler times. The place does have a staff of lifeguard to monitor the beaches and to make swimming here safe.

Owing to its gorgeous location, the Lighthouse point park is also a favoured wedding venue. And on any other day, you can still come here for an early morning jog, an afternoon sunny walk or for a relaxing picnic during summers.

  • I visited this park with my friends. You can visit easily via bus or cab from downtown. There is beautiful light house and the beach was not crystal clear but it was comparatively cleaner beach. When I went there was a wedding going on side-by and it was beautiful.

  • Delightful location. People could truly be less sloppy but overall pleasant to visit. rooms a snack bar on one end. Merry go round and event hall on the other. Gorgeous lighthouse and big property for picnics as well as chilling on the beach. I recommend this location.

  • A beautiful park and beach. The grounds are lovely with plenty of parking. The carousel is magnificent 🎠. It was a gorgeous day for the walk to End Alzheimer's.

  • Love this beach!! Nice and clean!! They have a nice size splash pad. Also have staff making sure the kids are not rough housing. Has a lot of rules in the splash pad but it works out for the best. Nice place to do BBQs or summer birthday parties for the kids. I can not say it enough it's very clean and they keep it clean! Unlike certain beaches in CT.
