Greenwich Point to reopen on Saturday

Since the impact of Superstorm Sandy hit the coastal area of Greenwich hard, one of the main unanswered questions has been when is Greenwich Point going to reopen?

Well the good news is that the answer is in and it’s tomorrow.

According to a town press release, Greenwich Point Park will re-open beginning Saturday, November 17 after weeks of cleanup from the storm that eroded the beaches, destroyed homes and damaged historic structures in the area. But the town warned that because of the conditions, there will be limited hours available with tight restrictions on what activities are permitted.

Starting Saturday, Greenwich Point will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m,. and there will be no bicycling, rollerblading and similar activities allowed in the park until further notice. Certain areas of Greenwich Point have been fenced off for public safety and people are being urged by the town to not try and access these areas.

Since storm cleanup is ongoing, there will be periodic road closures will take place so drivers and walkers are being told to be careful of large vehicles doing work on the park

Greenwich Point has long been a popular area in town off season for people to take their dogs, but as of right now there are still no dogs allowed inside the park. However, that restriction is expected to be lifted after December 1.
