Yes, it is a little out of the way and, yes, it's not large, but this little park has a big heart. A delightful garden, lots of open space and solitude - perfect for unwinding after a stressful day or just hanging out with kids...More

I imagine this is wonderful when the flowers are in bloom, but I went in April and it is somewhat desolate. I am somewhat happy I got to see the ruin. I suggest going to CovePark instead if you are just in the area for...More

Fort Stamford was a very nice stop. A few ruins are still able to be seen and gives you an idea of what early america was like in the area. Some trails to wander upon

If you're looking for a place to let your children play this isn't the park. With it's beautiful gardens it's more of a peaceful place to come and decompress. Bring your Yoga Mat, your camera or a picnic and enjoy the peace within these gardens.

The Stamford Garden Club has maintained the Goodbody Garden since 1976. I go there occasionally when the plants are at their peak. I'm impressed with their civic devotion. There's not a lot left of Fort Stamford, but it is nonetheless less an important site, a...More

Some people never go sightseeing in their own backyards. Fairfield county residents, or visitors to the Stamford area may miss this little North Stamford sanctuary that is a restored Revolutionary Fort (with four "redoubts" ), originally belonging to the Siwanoy Indians. Later, a family named...More

I'm not actually sure. I haven't ever seen dogs there so I'm going with no. But have you checked out the dog park that's off exit 9?
