Photo Walk Description
Greenwich Point, a 147 acre recreational peninsula popular for swimming, fishing, boating, water sports, walking, and nature studies, is a photographer’s playground. A network of trails weave among salt grasses and wildflowers as they lead along the changing coastline. Sandy beaches, sloping hills, herrings, gulls, terns and egrets, nesting birds, mergansers, black ducks, tamarisks and Russian olives, woods, marshes, groves and gardens – it’s all here. Surrounded by water on three sides, the park includes a marina with moorings and craft of many sizes. Residents young and old come to fly kites, build sand castles, participate foot races and bike-a-thon’s, and, of course, to relax and commune with nature.
I have lived in Greenwich nearly all my adult life and have often enjoyed Greenwich Point. The only photo I ever purchased was taken there – by someone else. I am a relatively non-serious amateur photographer, as you can tell from my all-to-infrequent updates on Flickr.
Greenwich Point is normally open to town residents with a Beach Card, BUT I have arranged for a group permit. Just tell the gate attendant you are with the Photo Walk — no beach card needed. Past the gate, stay left, go as far as you can and park. We will meet at Joe’s, the food concession stand. After the shoot, we’ll gather again at Joe’s for a bite and to share out morning. I hope you will join us for a beautiful walk, fresh air, and good company.
