Sherwood Island and its Friends

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 hike, bike, ski, swim, fish, study nature, watch birds, fly kites, fly model airplanes, play volleyball, picnic, or just relax under the trees.

Like other state parks, Sherwood Island needs the support of its friends.
The Friends of Sherwood Island State Park raise funds from public and private sources, help plan the park’s future, and work with other environmental and community organizations to give this wonderful park the TLC it deserves. All this is done in cooperation with the State Department of Environmental Protection.
