This is a partial/incomplete page as I have not yet explored Seaside State Park.

Visitors are allowed to walk around the property and the seawall, but the buildings are fenced in and off limits.

History:

Established as a Connecticut’s 108th state park in 2014.

The site of a former sanatorium – built in 1934 by renowned architect Cass Gilbert.  It was a hospital from children with tuberculosis until it was abandoned in 1996.  The state was been working on a plan to save the buildings and possibly turn it into a resort since 2015.  As of July 2019 no progress has been made.
