Greenwich Point Park
This pretty beach in a large green park with lots of trees and paths is super kid-friendly – gentle waves, lots of animals including geese and small crab to collect and covered wood pavilions for shade not far from the water. The concession stand sells an array of hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, ice cream and other food. Clean up at bathrooms with outdoor showers and changing stalls.
From May 1 to October 31, daily non-resident beach passes must be purchased in advance at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center (90 Harding Rd, Old Greenwich, CT) Monday – Friday 9 am-6 pm. Pricey but keeps the crowds out.
