For the kids: You get the feel of a South Shore ocean beach without the potential roughness of the ocean waves. Sunken Meadow has a boardwalk, concessions, picnic areas and ballfields. And it has wide open, calm water for the little ones and seagulls that make it seem like you're at the Atlantic.

For everyone: The three-mile beach on Long Island Sound includes beach ramp and sand wheelchair available, picnic area, umbrella rentals, refreshment stands, 3 playgrounds, outdoor showers, 4 softball fields, soccer field, 8 basketball courts, Field 4 picnic shelter for rental in the West Orchard Picnic Area, three 9-hole golf courses and driving range, putting green, club house, pro-shop, 4-mile nature trail, cross-country skiing (need own equipment), fishing (night fishing to Dec. 31; permit required), 2 miles of the Greenbelt Trail, first aid station open during the swimming season.
