    Great But...

    We went for an afternoon trip on a Sunday and we were really looking forward to it BUT there’s a very unfortunately placed shooting range nearby and you could hear pops going off the whole time. My dog is terrified of noises like that so it really just put a big fat bummer on our afternoon.

    Otherwise the park itself was fun and very dog friendly so as long as you have dogs that don’t care about pop noises you’ll be fine!

    it's a beautiful park but I didn't think the $10 entry fee was worth it, the walk certainly isn't long enough and we had limited access (dogs are no longer permitted on the beach).

    On 11/8/14, we took our 6 month old puppy here and we had the best time. Loved the different trails, especially overlooking the Long Island Sound. When we got there, I thought we were at the wrong place, because of how beautiful the grounds were. It was great that they have bag stations situated throughout. We met other dog owners. They could not have been nicer. It's a 40 minute ride for us, but we'll be back again and again.

    Great Trails

    Took my dog to Sands Point Preserve this morning (June 1, 2014) and the park was amazing. We had a great time on the walking trails but did not check out the beach. According to the website dogs are no longer allowed on the beach, but did not investigate while I was there. Parking costs $10 per vehicle.
