Sherwood Island State Park, on the shore of Long Island Sound in Westport Connecticut, covers 234 acres of beach, wetlands and woodlands. People come to the park to walk, bike, swim, fish, study nature, watch birds, fly kites, fly model airplanes, play volleyball, picnic, or just relax under the trees.

The new Nature Center, on the east side, between the East Beach and the Nature Trail opened for the first time in 2009.

There are lots of ways that you can get involved! If you are interested in volunteering your time, please contact Friends of Sherwood Island at or complete the Online Volunteer Form . Thank you for your interest!
