|Park Description:|| |
The park takes its name from the low meadowland which separates the beach from the uplands. A man made dam separates a brackish creek and marshes from the tidal flats, south of which are acres of undeveloped and heavily-wooded hills. The visitor can swim in Long Island Sound where three miles of beach meets tall, glacier formed bluffs at the west end of the shoreline. There is biking, horseback riding, picnicking, windsurfing, cross-country skiing, 27 holes of golf, a driving range, a putting range and a three quarter mile boardwalk.
In undeveloped areas of the park dogs only are permitted with a 6 foot leash. Not allowed in bathing or picnic areas, in buildings or on walkways. Pets cannot enter through the main entrance. Contact Park Office.
