Growing up in Darien, Weed Beach was always my favorite of the 2 public beaches because there is just so much to DO there. You would hardly know you were driving up to a beach because of the rolling hills and wooded park and tennis courts you pass through before even reaching the beach parking lot — there’s even a tiny playground back in the woods — and I personally think that combination of park with beach is really neat.
In fact, Weed Beach park is 22 acres and includes a beach with swimming area, picnic areas, six tennis courts, five paddle tennis courts, children’s play areas, a bathhouse, a windsurfing area, and a concession stand.
For information about using the public tennis courts and paddle courts, see the Tennis category.
I think when it comes to what makes Weed Beach Park a great beach pictures speak a thousand words … so we’ll leave it at that.
