Some State Beaches Fill To Capacity Early

With a heat advisory for Independence Day and a forecast for temperatures in the nineties in Connecticut,  many residents headed for the state’s beaches.  Even before 10 a.m.,  the state issued advisories that Rocky Neck State Park in Old Lyme and Sherwood Island State Park in Westport both had filled to capacity and were closed to additional visitors.

Over the course of the morning the Department of Energy and Environmental protection sent additional tweets, alerting would-be visitors that Kent Falls, Squantz Pond, Indian Well, Wadsworth Falls, Burr Pond, Gardner Lake, Mount Tom and Lake Waramaug State Parks also had been closed.

By 10:45 the City of New Haven had announced that Lighthouse Point Park had reached full capacity.
