Conneaut Township Park
eBird Bar Charts by Season
Extending west from the lighthouse is the park’s .4- mile long foot-friendly sand beach. It ranges in width from more than 1,000 feet along the east side to around 200-feet wide at the park’s west end. A series of wooden boardwalks, collectively called the Conneaut Township Park Boardwalk, connect parking areas to the beach and shore.
About half of Conneaut Township Park’s acres are comprised of sand that has collected on the west side of Conneaut Harbor’s west breakwater. The harbor’s .3-mile long southern breakwater marks the east side of the beach. Sand covers all but the northern 600 feet of the breakwater, which is used for fishing access.
The nearly 60-acre Conneaut Township Park is on land north of OH-531 (Lake Road) from the Chestnut Street intersection east to Lake Bluff Way. The park has numerous parking lots including lots off of the Chestnut Street Extension, and Grove Street’s north terminus which loops the southeast corner of the park.
