“Nice spot”
Review of Cove Island Park

Cove Island Park
Ranked #2 of 28 things to do in Stamford

Attraction details
Reviewed 20 September 2013

The park offers a variety of choices. There is a 1 mile loop with great views of Long Island Sound and it is nice to see all the action of picnics and people jogging, on bikes or on roller blades. There is also a beach.

The park has plenty of parking. Enjoyable to walk about on the paved pathways, sit in the sun or a dip in the water. Enjoy an icecream before heading home.

If you are looking for a place to run, walk or to spend time with nature then Cove Island Park is the place to go. Not only is the park beautiful and well kept but if you are into running or power walking it has excellent trails and space!!!

This beach was close to our hotel and not crowded. It is not a Caribbean beach by any means, but it was very pleasant. We chose to park on the street a few blocks away and not pay for parking. The beach is well-maintained, family-friendly, and was not crowded on a Friday in July. There are convenient changing rooms, a snack bar, a walking/cycling trail, and different areas for swimming, canoeing, and sitting under the trees on numerous benches with a view of the water. The water was a bit cold and the beach a bit rough in places, but all in all, it was a good experience.

Nice place for Stamford residents and non-residents as well. Have paved tracks for jogging, biking and skating. Beach is pretty safe for Children with only 3 to 4 feet of water in most of the designated swimming areas though one need to understand it lacks the waves due to the Long Island Sound(the story of beaches in Connecticut). The water can appear cloudy sometimes due to the presence of weeds. There are trees to provide shades available throughout the park. Do not forget to take canned beers(bottled beers are prohibited) to have a enjoyable day.
