Penfield Beach

323 Fairfield Beach Rd

Penfield Beach is a 3.5 acre beachfront property that is a favorite for many Fairfielders. A great place to swim and sun along the Long Island Sound, it offers a long stretch of sandy beach which abutts Rickards Beach. Part of the Penfield Complex, the property boasts two waterfront Banquet Facilities, sailboat racks, lockers to rent for the season or for the day, a large covered deck, handicapped accessibility and bathroom facilities. Lifeguard schedule.

There are picnic tables and charcoal grills set up on the beach for visitor use on a first come-first served basis; remember to bring your own charcoal and matches. There is a concession where visitors can purchase snacks if grilling your own food is not on your agenda.  

Along with swing sets for the kids, Penfield is a site of The Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play' Project. Twenty six playgrounds have been built to honor the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary.  The playground in Fairfield celebrates the life of Jessica Rekos. 

Penfield Beach is free and open to the public, however, the parking lot will be open from 10:00 am - 11:00 pm to Fairfield Residents with a valid 2021 Fairfield Resident Beach Sticker only beginning the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
