Seaside Park is a beautiful place along Long Island Sound. Parking "inside" the park is crazy expensive for non-residents ($50!) but there was street parking that was free. Beautiful place to walk- in the park and on the beach, and to swim and picnic.

A great park. Designed by Frederick law olmstead. Has beach, ball fields, plenty of parking and a skate park. City needs to take better care of this gem

A beautiful park on Long Island Sound, but we weren't willing to pay the high price as non-residents of Bridgeport. We were able to park nearby and walk into the park and stroll along the seawall walk.

What a gem! A PTBarnum extravaganza of a beach park and though built in better times it is appreciated by all. Too bad Bridgeport doesn't have a little more money to keep it up. But if they did maybe it wouldn't be so special.
