Due to a surge in membership, we are no longer accepting new members this season and the lot will remain members only.  Members who were active in 2019 may still renew but additional stickers are not available for purchase; 1 sticker per renewing member.  We apologize for any inconvenience but feel that this is the right decision to increase the likelihood that members will find available parking.

Stickers are not mailed out; if there is an agent there, we can take renewal payments and issue stickers.  Masks are required when engaging with our agents and no change will be provided so please bring a check or exact change.

Please note that trash receptacles at the entrance to the park have been removed by the town.  Please take your trash home with you and keep our park entrance clear of debris, thank you!

The Park

We own and maintain this seaside park for the enjoyment of the community and provide nearby parking for our members and visitors.

The Sun Circle

Located in the center of our park, the Sun Circle is an astronomical sculpture. The stone sentinels surrounding the central platform mark the locations of the rising and setting sun on the solstice and equinox dates throughout the year.


Founded in 1934, the CIA has a long history leading up to  the 1991 gifting of the property that now comprises our park.
