Things to Do
Gather your friends and family and visit Cos Cob Park. Overlooking the Long Island Sound, the neighborhood's namesake park has a wealth of amenities fit for any gathering. Its playgrounds, gathering spots, gazebos, and athletic fields provide endless hours of outdoor recreation and fresh outdoor coastal breezes that practically melt time away, and it is favored as a great place to walk your pup along the coast. Cos Cob is also known for its expansive hiking options, where streamside trails run tirelessly through wooded sanctuaries. Just be mindful in the rainy season, as portions of the lowland hiking trails are prone to flooding.
The pristine Cos Cob lands are well respected by the locals, and Friends of Mianus River Park volunteers pitch in to keep the heavily frequented natural habitat clean. Greenwich Audubon Society is equally dedicated to serving the area's awesome natural amenities, hosting nature outreach programs and events at its education center and portions of the area's nearly 700 acres of habitat.
Located just north of the Mianus River Bridge, the Greenwich Water Club unites boating aficionados with the utmost style. There, club members are provided with an incredibly refined clubhouse experience, complete with fine dining, upscale social events, and an extremely well-equipped fitness center. Those looking to get a little more active might want to make new friends with the Greenwich Crew Rowing Club, which keeps rowing enthusiasts of any stage of life fit, active, and socially connected.
Cos Cob is truly a work of art as far as East Coast luxury communities go — and considering how luxurious the wider Greenwich area is itself, that's no small claim. It’s a great place to live.
