Sherwood Island State Park
Purchased in 1914, Sherwood Island is Connecticut’s first state park. Its 234 acres are divided into a distinct east side (including a sandy beach, tidal marsh, nature trail, and the popular model airplane field) and west side (hiking trails, picnic tables, marsh, and forest ). The division between these areas is Sherwood Point, a rocky area popular for fishing and viewing boats across the New York City skyline, as well as the site of Connecticut’s official 9/11 Living Memorial. The park’s nature center, open late spring through early fall, is a state-of-the-art facility featuring interactive displays, outdoor education programs, and free weekly lectures and special events.
