Top 5 Playgrounds in Stamford for Preschool & Elementary School Kids

  1. Nature’s Playground at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center
    39 Scofieldtown Road
    At the playground, kids can climb to a tree house with a lookout, then wind their way down a tubular slide or zoom down the otter slide. They can jump on a bouncing bug, try to walk across a moving bridge or climb into a hawk’s nest to survey their territory. Wiggle like a worm across two huge maple leaves, and crawl through an ant’s nest. Dig for fossils in the huge sand pit. They also can become the captain and crew of the boat that’s anchored here. Access available with a membership or by paying an entry fee.
  2. Emmet’s Playground at Temple Beth El
    350 Roxbury Road
    This playground was built in memory of 10-year-old Emmet Manheim who passed away from aplastic anemia. With help from a kid’s planning and design committee composed of Emmet’s cousins and friends, the playground has a roller-coaster theme and incorporates Emmet’s passion for things that are “fun, fast, and fair.”
