The boardwalk at Silver Sands State Park, Milford
|Silver Sands State Park features a boardwalk with 1/10th mile markers extending west 3/4 miles, connecting the State park to the City of Milford's Walnut Beach Park. The site includes an offshore island connected to the mainland by a sand and gravel bar (tombolo) that is submerged at high tide. Accessing the tombolo is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS and should be avoided. Access to the island is prohibited May 1 through August 31 to protect heron and egret rookeries. To help you reach Silver Sands State Park, some routes leading to this site are posted with boat launch symbol signs. Access to the Park in the evening is available to marine anglers only via the small parking area at the end of East Broadway located at the south central end of the Park. See the Park map for the location of the marine angler satellite parking area. To help you reach Silver Sands State Park, some routes leading to this site are posted with the brown and white Long Island Sound Access sign .|
