All of the above answers are absolutely correct. There are several private memberships golf, and beach clubs in town which are available to join.Privleges for golf at some clubs can be as high as ten years.That said,Darien has two town beaches available to residents only and lots of families enjoy them year round for picnics,swimming BBQ's etc. Its one of the best towns for beach amenities.In fact one of the beaches is in the process of building an incredible locker,food beach house. Its going to be awesome.Weed Beach is also home to a brand new playground.So...private clubs sure...great public shoreline spaces too....Call mw if youd like to drive arounnd. ... more

Where exactly will the dog park be located? I didn't know it was due to be done the end of this month.

They ought to have an area, where friendly dogs, like beagles, golden retrievers, cocker spaniel can go to, and then more aggressive dogs, like German Shepherds, Dobermans, pitbulls, & chows can go to another area.
We visited a dog park in glastonbury and there's lots of signs warning the owners to go at their own risk!
Like taking your dog to a dog park is putting their lives at risk. They also told you to not bring any balls or play toys with you to the park, as that would might make another dog aggressive!

I've been to many dog parks, and that was never printed on any bulletins. What's the point of going to a dog park, if your dog cannot play ball there?

When I was a kid, (we are talking a long, long time ago,) swimming pools were a new thing and Community Swiming pools were really new.
Our fathers had to deal with bicycles.
Then someone invented skateboards and Hula Hoops.
Every generation has had their fads, and the City Fathers had to cope with these new-fangled things.
Now we have Skate Parks, with all their perils and dangers.
(We have a lot of Skate Parks, out here on the Left Coast!)

So we have to make choices;
We can ban them,
We can make every child and their parents sign disclaimers,
We can, (i don't know a third choice)

But the families will move where there is the most/best family facilities!
If you're worried about the lawsuits;

I have it on good authority that the Supreme Court is going to render a decision that say that everyone is responsible for their own actions and the consequences thereof.
It's going to happen! I know it's going to happen!
