Cove Island Park

“Cove Island Park has it all including developed recreation facilities such as a 1-mile loop walking/running trail, children’s play area, a roller blade/cycling path and expansive lawn areas for kite-flying. There are two sandy beaches, a small salt marsh, intertidal mudflats and the estuarine embayments of Holly Pond and the Cove River that provide opportunities for birders to observe water birds. Rocky shoreline areas offer a place for anglers to hook that ” big one” and a small bluff offers an excellent viewpoint for those looking for a place view the Sound while strolling along this first-rate shoreline park. Detailed descriptions of the site’s coastal resources are provided along the Park’s recently completed Long Island Sound interpretive trail. A state-of-the art nature center with displays on Long Island Sound can also be found at the Park. Be sure to consult City’s website listed below for required passes/fees to enter park. Non-resident daily and seasonal passes to the Park can now be purchased at the park gate from 10 am to 6 pm daily. Passes can also be purchased at the cashier’s office in the Stamford Government Center building, 888 Washington Boulevard, Stamford. For those wishing to visit the site by bus, CT Transit stops at this Park.”
