Black Rock Coastline Area

A quaint enclave with many historic buildings and homes, Black Rock is the only coastline waterfront area in Bridgeport, and a true gem of Fairfield County. If you go through Black Rock Historic District, you will be impressed to see so many beautifully built and restored historic residences, charming old homes or recently built waterfront homes and condos.

All the waterfront homes in Black Rock offer sweeping water views. On the eastern shore you will admire the beautiful Seaside Waterfront Park and Beach, and also the Fayerweather Island Lighthouse. On the western shore you can see the gorgeous Ash Creek estuary with its magical sunsets and wildlife fowl, and on the southern shore you will have panoramic views of the L.I.Sound, the Lighthouse and also views of the Jennings Beach in the nearby Fairfield.

Once a major seaport/ shipbuilding center, Black Rock still has an intense nautical vibe inspiring many boaters in Bridgeport and nearby. You can be part of a great boating community and enjoy the racing events at the century-old Black Rock Yacht Club and Sailing School. At the Fayerweather Yacht Club you can enjoy 2 great marinas in nearby Fairfield, just across the Ash Creek, and also Captain's Cove or Cedar Marina in West End Bridgeport, just across the Burr Creek.

If you love long walks along the beach, you will also love the iconic St. Mary's-by-the-Sea, a quaint destination park with beachfront walkways offering spectacular views of the L.I.Sound.

For more privacy, you can choose the quiet Seabright Beach, a great place for relaxing, sunbathing and kayaking. The nearby S.S. Norden Club and Hermann Beach kayak club are also great places offering plenty of waterfront recreation activities and stunning water views. There's also the Ellsworth Waterfront Park with several tennis courts and baseball fields.

A very special place, loved and protected by Black Rock residents, is Ash Creek - a wildlife sanctuary and a valuable ecosystem acting as a storm and wave buffer, helping to stabilize the shoreline and capture upstream pollution before reaching the L.I.Sound.

The estuary provides many opportunities for recreation, including nature walks, kayaking or non-motorized boating, and also many opportunities to be part of school environmental programs.
