In the heart of Stamford lies an oasis of calm: the Mill River Park. Designed around the course of the serene Mill River, this park offers a recreational haven for the city's residents. Among the facilities on offer are a playground, basketball court, an amphitheater, carousel, an ice skating rink and a launch for kayaks. The park is a part of a massive project to restore the Mill River and preserve the surrounding environment. Visitors can choose to spend a day with the family, enjoying the various facilities at the park, or they can come for a jog, walk or a bicycle ride along the gorgeous Greenway.
