Unplug and Unwind at Cove Island Park
In trying times, you can always find solace in the great outdoors. You’ve probably been craving fresh air more than ever lately—have you thought of going to Cove Island Park? It’s nearby in Stamford and boasts more than enough space for a whole flock of socially distanced visitors to spread out.
Tucked away in the park are two beaches, sandwiched between a salt marsh and mudflats. Nearby Holly Pond and Cove River attract winged wildlife, which makes Cove Island Park a popular place for birdwatchers. If you’re in the mood for a run or a stroll, the one-mile loop is perfect for a quick excursion. You’re also welcome to bike or rollerblade, fly a kite, or spread out a blanket on the lawn and have a picnic at Cove Island Park.
