Cove Island Park is an 83 acre park and beach in the Cove section of Stamford, Connecticut, located on Long Island Sound. It is a popular spot for Stamford residents to rollerblade, bike, walk, barbecue, and ride the tram around the island.

The city’s Park Commission has loosened and restricted park access to out-of-town visitors over time. As of summer 2014, Stamford residents with valid Stamford car registrations can buy a season pass for $20 at Government Center. Non-residents and non-pass holders pay $20 for a day pass.
