Know Before You Go
As of February 2018, there is no entrance to Pleasure Beach other than to walk from Long Beach Park in Stratford. The bridge that used to connect the mainland of Bridgeport to this outlet has been burned and is no longer in use. You can find parking at Long Beach, followed by a 1.8-mile walk to your destination. This will take about 35 minutes. Once you've walked most of the way, bear to the right and you'll eventually come across an old paved road that will take you straight to the entrance.
Be advised, there is security equipment once you arrive to Pleasure Beach (mainly security cameras attached to buildings and electric towers.) This path is frequently monitored by the City of Bridgeport via these systems. It is also highly suggested that you travel in a group for your safety if you decide to go due to the seclusion from populated areas and response time for any medical or law enforcement help.
The carousel has been demolished and all that remains is the theater (yellow octagon building) and the wooden pavilion. You can’t walk to many of the abandoned buildings as they are in a conservation area and there are huge fines, especially during endangered bird breeding months.
