Description: Stamford Dog Park was established in 2009 and is located on a 1.2-acre section of Hunt Park off Courtland Ave. in Stamford, CT. It’s fenced off into two sections, one for big dogs and one for smaller dogs, and both sections have their own gravel-lined watering stations, seating and poop-bag dispenser. The section for larger dogs is situated on a much larger piece of land, however. The park is easy access off of exit 9 of I-95.
REVIEW BY DUSTY BLUE: I hung out in the smaller-dog section because as soon as we arrived, two large hounds went crazy when they saw me and their owner had a hard time containing them. Luckily, a lot of smaller dogs showed up and I had a great time socializing and playing with them all. This seems like it would be a great park for local dogs, but I didn’t see many trees for me to mark. I also need a lot more room to run than what the smaller-dog section offers, and I could hear all of the nonstop traffic sounds from nearby I-95.
