I've only been at Lighthouse Park for 2 weddings and an ALS walk. It's a stunning park nestled in New Haven. The facilities, the carousel, and the beach area are beautiful. There are restrooms and it's a delightful place to be.

We wanted to take a picture of the lighthouse but entrance fee to the park was $30.00 per car for an out of state vehicle. We heard the park was nice but wasn't about to pay $30.00 just to take a picture of the lighthouse
