Visited with our 2 year old son and he loved it! Lots to do for his age and up. We had a great time! The beach looked clean...we'd like to come back when it's warm enough to swim!

Nice clean well maintained, with lifeguard. Nice playground at top of the park. Great place to relax. Very busy on weekends and holidays, get there early. The view of the Power plant takes a little bit of the beauty of this location.

Not sure when the beach closes. Calling the East Lyme Parks and Recreation Dept. @ 860-739-5828 would be best to get accurate answers to your questions.
