The Covid-19 outbreak has slowed our lives down and offered many the opportunity to see the beauty in our midst. Since the outbreak began, our park has seen a surge in usage. On sunny days, the parking lots are congested with visitors looking for a change of scenery.

A couple of quick reminders:

  • It is illegal to park along the sides of Merriebrook Lane, General Waterbury Lane, or Westover Road. The police are patrolling regularly and will ticket you.
  • Social distancing rules apply. Wear a mask and stay 6 feet apart.
  • Stay on the trails whenever possible. It takes years for trees and shrubs to regrow.
  • Dogs need to be leashed. We just received reports of a rabid raccoon.
  • Cleaning and maintaining the park is done by volunteers. So for those, who have been cleaning up after park users, thank you.
  • Bikes and Dogs are not allowed in the Nature Area (Red Barn side of park)

Maps of the park are available at mrp-trailmap.htm

Welcome to Mianus River Park

Mianus River Park, a nearly 400-acre urban forest sandwiched between Greenwich and Stamford Connecticut, provides countless opportunities to reconnect with nature. It's dramatic landscape includes the Mianus River and its tributary streams, wetlands, hiking trails, rock formations, a wildflower garden and even a cave.

The Friends of Mianus River Park have prepared this website to help you explore the park and better understand its resources and understand what the Friends do for the park and its users. We invite you to explore the site, learn about the park and help us in our effort to sustain and protect it for all users and Future Generations.
