A coastal village within the town of Norwalk, Rowayton is located on Long Island Sound, 45 miles from New York City.
Rowayton has a sophisticated yet casual character that is uniquely its own. It's all about the water in Rowayton. There are three private beach associations, as well as Bayley Beach which is open to all Rowayton residents and home to concerts, picnics and the Fourth of July fireworks. Pinkney Park sits on the river and hosts Shakespeare on the Sound, an annual outdoor theater festival of the highest caliber. With its Farmer's Market, concerts and Historical Society, Pinkney Park is the heart of town. Marinas and waterfront restaurants also dot the downtown area. Less than an hour from Manhattan with its own Metro North train station, Rowayton has a strong sense of community among its 4,000 residents, many of whom can be seen walking, biking, running, sailing and generally enjoying an active lifestyle in the natural beauty and friendly inclusive atmosphere that Rowayton has to offer.
