Tod’s Point at Greenwich Point Park
Interested in sponsorsing this page?
On this trip, I was visiting some old friends from Iowa in Stamford, CT. When asked what I wanted to do while in town, I told my friends that I wanted to do whatever a local does. It turns out, locals really love their dogs (my friends included), and many of them walk them at Greenwich Point Park (colloquially referred to as Tod’s Point) when the weather is nice. The park is only open to residents of Greenwich during summer months (and dogs aren’t allowed), however during the winter, the public is welcome and dogs are allowed.
About Tod’s Point at Greenwich Point Park
There are multiple places to park (parking lots and spaces along the road) within Greenwich Point Park, and people can be found all around the park walking, riding bikes, or just sitting and enjoying the nature in their cars or on the trail-side benches. The mixed use path forms a large loop around the park with stunning views of New York City in the distance. On the day I was there, there was a beautiful cloudy sunset, and some pretty incredible weather (unseasonably warm for winter in Connecticut).
A note on running
This is a great park to trail run in, just make sure to bring shoes with treads, as some of the path is slightly rocky or dirt. There are also parts of the path where you’ll need to share the road with cars. That said, the actual route is mostly flat with unnoticeable gains and falls. Oh, there’s also no admission fee to get into the park.
If you’re looking for something fun to do on a warm winter day near Stamford, I highly recommend a trip to Tod’s Point at Greenwich Point Park. In-fact, if you’ve been there before, I’d love to hear about your experience in the comments section!
