West Haven’s shoreline is one of the crown-jewel locations in Connecticut. The Sandy Point estuary, one of the sites featured on the Connecticut Coastal Birding Trail, has been designated an “important bird area” by Audubon Connecticut. Historic Bradley Point Park, featuring sweeping panoramas of Long Island Sound, marks the area where invading British troops landed on July 5, 1779, and now serves as a hotbed for picnickers and passive recreation. The shoreline is minutes from the historic downtown business district.
