After several days of rain today was a much needed escape into the great outdoors! Compo Beach has a wonderful playground located right in the sand at the Sound. There are several areas for different age children which is nice and the area for younger children is fenced in. The view of the water is not bad either! There are several swings – from baby swings to regular swings to tire swings. And, slides and walk ways complete with poles to slide down and posts to walk on. No one can complain about pushing a child on a swing as you watch the sun going down and the sky lighting up the sky over the sand and water.
Compo has a concession/ restaurant, Joey’s by the Shore, for when you get thirsty or hungry. There are also benches and tables for you to sit to enjoy your snack/ meal. There are tables both under cover and in the open open. Joey’s offers ice cream, snacks, sandwiches, wraps, fruit, drinks, and more.
There are grills in the sand by the marina and restrooms with changing areas. There are often groups of people sitting at tables or circled up in comfy chairs enjoying a meal and each other’s company.
Additionally, there are fields, basketball courts, and s skate park.
After October 1 anyone may park at the beach whether you have a Westport sticker not so come and check it out!
