Beach alternative?

I am accompanying my husband on a business trip to Greenwich with our two children. I am not thrilled at the idea of paying $50/day to visit the city beaches ($20 for parking and $10 each for day passes). Is there a nearby beach that we could go to that is not so expensive? We don't plan to spend the whole day there, so I just can't imagine paying that much.

Thanks!

Look up Sherwood Island Sate park. $15 a day during the week, including parking. 15-20 minutes north on I-95. Nice beach., can be crowded on week ends.

Wanted to give an update... We ended up at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk for the day and had a great time. Paid $15/car, bought some ice cream, and caught lots of minnows. Kids had a blast.
