Creating & sustaining a world-class park
Mill River Park Collaborative is the 501(c)3 nonprofit responsible for growing and maintaining Stamford’s central park.
The Collaborative was established in 2004 to bring to life the community vision of a central park in the heart of downtown Stamford. As a public-private partnership, it works hand-in-hand with donors and the City of Stamford to make Mill River Park a vibrant, evolving green space where the community can gather to relax, play, learn and connect with nature.
The Collaborative holds a 10-year renewable contract with the City of Stamford to oversee the design, construction, maintenance and programming of the park. About 30% of Mill River Park’s annual budget comes from the city. The remaining two-thirds comes from the generous support of community members like you.
