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.
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 are also swing sets for the kids. There is a nice concession where visitors can purchase snacks if grilling your own food is not on your agenda.
Penfield Beach is free and open to the public, however, from Memorial Day Saturday to Labor Day a beach sticker is reqiuired to park in the lot. Vehicles without a beach sticker may pay a daily fee of $15.00 on Weekdays and $25.00 on Weekends & Holidays at the gate.
