Welcome to Mill River Park in Stamford, CT! A 45 minute express train ride from NYC, Mill River Park is a 12-acre transformative space in the heart of downtown Stamford. Frequently described as a “Mini Central Park”, a quick tour reveals a beautiful sparkling and free flowing river with dozens of new species of wild life, a brilliant community-built playground, and 3 incredibly landscaped outdoor activation areas for our Spartan Kids Obstacle course. Over the past few years, they have begun 28 acres of revitalization, including the recent construction of the Brownstein/Selkowitz Pavilion, which will house the Nissen Carousel. The Nissen Carousel, with its 30 hand-carved figures and a fully accessible chariot, will provide joy for children of all ages. Calling all Spartan…. Kids! Back by popular demand!! Come be a part of the largest Spartan Kids-only event in Spartan history!
