The 1.1-mile-long boardwalk connects Cini Memorial Park and the “gut” of the Niantic River to the Hole-In-The-Wall Beach and McCook Point Park and Beach. It’s easy to see where the new section of the concrete boardwalk begins because the sandy beach is replaced by a sea of rocks armoring the shoreline. This new boardwalk isn’t going anywhere.
The beauty of the completed boardwalk is that visitors can now access McCook Point, a beautiful craggy rock outcrop and ledge with beautiful view across Long Island Sound. There are two vantage points at McCook Point, named after the Hartford family that sold the land – once known as Champlin Point — to East Lyme. The family was known as the “Fighting McCooks” because the father, five sons, an uncle and eight cousins fought in the Civil War.
