The City of Stamford is excited to announce the Parks Strategic Plan. There are over 56 parks in the City of Stamford and Mayor Caroline Simmons' goal is to ensure every resident has access to a quality park within a 10-minute walk of where they live. The Parks Strategic Plan aims to manage and invest in the sustainability of our parks, beaches, and trails. Strategic planning is necessary to set realistic goals, create action items, and ensure that these items are completed. By prioritizing the operation and development of our parks, we build the roadmap for making Stamford a more resilient and sustainable community.
Led by Local Office Landscape and Urban Design, supported by James Lima Planning and Development, and the Trust for Public Land, the Strategic Plan is an opportunity to restore and enhance the City's parks to improve quality of life, public health, and climate issues. Mayor Simmons' vision is to create a vibrant, resilient, and equitable public open space network that all can enjoy for generations to come.
