Park Goers Welcome Free Weekend at Sherwood Island

By James Lomuscio

The best things in life are free, the 1927 lyrics go, and for Raimundo DeSouza of Naugatuck that sentiment hit home literally and unexpectedly when he reached the entry booth to Sherwood Island State Park in Westport today. Image

“I was surprised,” he said about free admission to the park this weekend as part of the state parks’ centennial celebration. “The lady said it was for the 100th anniversary, and she gave me a brochure.”

It was the first time he and his family had been there.

DeSouza gazed out at the expansive sun soaked sands of West Beach, the Long Island Sound’s blue waters lined with spinnaker sails slightly veiled by a gauzy mist from burned-off morning rain.
