Scenic view of the beach at Savin Rock Conference Center, West Haven
Savin Rock Conference Center provides benches, telescopes and occasional public art displays.  Interpretive signage is provided on the origins of Savin Rock.  A gazebo is available if you prefer the shade.  Beaches are adjacent to this site.  West Haven provides 3.5 miles of public beach or waterfront park, each with its own amenities or environmental setting.  Beaches from Bradley Point Park to Sandy Point are networked through a 1.7 mile walkway providing pedestrians, bicyclists and roller-bladers a continuous waterfront urban “greenway” experience.  Views of Long Island Sound exist throughout most of the walkway.  Most beach parking lots in West Haven close at 11:30 p.m. although the walkway is open 24 hours, every day.
