Introducing Norwalk Harbor View at Cove

                                                     A Venue with a VIEW


The most beautiful waterfront location in Fairfield County is now available for private parties! We are pleased to announce the opening of Norwalk Harbor View at Cove, a waterfront event venue located at Norwalk Cove Marina.  


Home to the popular Ascension Beach Pools for the last 50 years, the site is currently being landscaped and rehabilitated after the destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy last October.  

Our spot is a beautiful location with panoramic views of the Norwalk Islands. Ideal for weddings, family reunions, corporate and social functions, we can accommodate parties of up to 400 guests. Amenities include use of entire 2 acre property with direct beach access, a 40 X 60 tent, caterer cook tent, and new restrooms.            Available for bookings after July 1

For inquiries about reservations, please email or call 203-838-4686

Horseshoe Crab Tagging - This Friday Night

The Maritime Aquarium is seeking volunteers to help attach census tags to horseshoe crabs as they come out of the water to spawn at Calf Pasture Beach.  It's all part of a census of horseshoe crabs in Long Island Sound, being led by Dr. Jennifer Mattei of Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, and The Maritime Aquarium is assisting with the census and tagging.
