Plan your visit

Mill River Park is a place where all residents of Greater Stamford can come together to connect with nature, explore environmental stewardship, host events, get active and make special memories.

Explore the native flora and fauna that has returned to the Park’s 12 acres of greenway after the restoration of Mill River in downtown Stamford, CT.

Find a free fitness class, stop by for family-friendly crafts and stories, bring a friend to our next community party...and so much more.

Take a ride on the Park’s handcrafted carousel or schedule your next birthday bash in our award-winning carousel pavilion. 

Tie the knot at Mill River Park, plan your next family reunion, put together a field day for students or host a community event.
