Whether dining, shopping, the arts, music, theatre, dance, nightlife, working, living or just hanging around … Downtown is the place to be! There is a year-round calendar of exciting events from the annual sculpture exhibit, Bedford Street Arts & Crafts Fair, Saturday Farmer’s Market to the Thanksgiving Parade Spectacular or Rapelling Santa-there’s no shortage of choices. If live music is more to your liking, you can enjoy Wedsnesday Nite Live or Alive @ 5, 2 signature summer events held in Columbus Park over a 6 week period where the streets are shut down and the party is turned up! You can visit the Ferguson Library, the Stamford Mall or the newest addition – the Mill River Park & Greenway which is a 12 acre oasis featuring a carousel, walking paths and its own unique calendar of events. Lifestyle options include luxury rental and condo buildings in a unique urban setting.
Just north of Downtown, Mid City is packed with shopping centers, restaurants, world-class medical facilities, fitness centers, city parks and a public golf course, plus pockets of surprisingly quiet and tranquil neighborhoods of homes and condominiums. Scalzi Park is a local treasure, comprised of 48 acres and featuring tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, athletic fields, running and walking trails, a splash pad for children, playground, skate rink and a bocce ball arena, and for more daring, a zip line and climbing tower. There are also picnic and BBQ areas and Cubeta Stadium-home to many championship Babe Ruth games. Right around the corner is the public E. Gaynor Brennan 18 hole golf course which also offers great sledding hills!.
