Cummings Park is a beautiful, 79-acre park with a sandy beach fronting Long Island Sound. Visitors can enjoy the beach, pavilions, snack bar, boardwalk, public marina, boat launch and fishing pier. The park also has a playfield, four baseball fields, several basketball and tennis courts, rest rooms, a seasonal cafe, and a hillside that is popular among locals for winter sledding. Beach sand has a minimal pebble and shell mixture with a gradual entry to the water. The water is calm due to the Long Island Sound.
