I am about to move to Fairfield. I would like to ask a few questions:

- When I visited it last month I couldn't see any playgrounds (outdoor paygrounds in a park). Are there playgrounds in Fairfield?

- Also, I saw that most beaches are only for residents. If I am a resident of Fairfield, does it mean I cannot go to Mary by the Sea in Bridgeport?
- Where do I get the resident sticker?
- I also saw the beach parking prices ($15-25). Is that for residents?

Thank you

Hi!
There are playgrounds in Fairfield. You can find them at the primary schools, beach and most parks. The parking fee at the beaches is for non-residents only. You get your beach sticker for $18 and you can park at all the beaches (need car registration proving Fairfield residence). St Mary's by the Sea is in Bridgeport and everyone can go (is free). Just went this weekend and I live in Fairfield. Here is a link for the Fairfield Parks and Recreation:
Town of Fairfield | Fairfield Parks and Recreation

Let us know if you have more questions.

Best,

Fairfield offers quite a few great playgrounds. There is Sandcastle Park at Jennings Beach, Jackman Avenue Park in the Stratfield section of town, Gould Manor and Owen Fish Park to name a few. In addition to lake swimming, Lake Mohegan has a sprinkler park and a new playground area. And like the previous poster stated, once school is out you can visit the elementary school playgrounds also.

I'm so glad you posted this question, as my husband and I are moving to Fairfield at the end of this month and have a 2-year-old daughter who will love the parks and playgrounds. Best of luck to you!
