    When you and your family are looking for something to do and you’d like to spend time outdoors, you should definitely consider visiting their parks for a wide range of reasons. For starters, they hold many community events so you can get together with friends and neighbors for concerts, picnics, and other friendly activities for all to enjoy.

    Many of us spend too much time fighting the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. We sit in an office for 8 to 12 hours a day working hard to earn a paycheck, only to come home to a mountain of laundry, helping the kids with their homework, and other important tasks that need to get completed each day. This can be mentally draining and physically exhausting, so it’s important to get out in nature, inhale the fresh air, experience the sunshine, and get back to your roots and enjoy rest and relaxation.

    So, make it a point to visit our downtown parks often enough to relieve stress and anxiety. Take your children and throw around a Frisbee or football, play catch with your youngsters or other adults, and have a snowball fight or two as well. Remember to have fun, relax, and unwind as often as you can and take time to do it in Stamford’s stunning downtown parks because that’s what they’re there for.
