Lighthouse Point Park Shore and Bank Protection Project

Lighthouse Point Park is located at the entrance to New Haven Harbor at the southeastern tip of New Haven. A city owned beach extends along the southern shore of the point to Morris Creek.

The project consists of a 380-foot-long groin on the western end of Lighthouse Point Beach. It was constructed in September 1958 at a cost of $11,800.
