Stamford Park Damaged by Superstorm Sandy Reopens 4 Years Later

A portion of a Stamford, Connecticut park that was severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy nearly four years ago has finally reopened. 

Mayor Kevin Martin reopened the southern point of the seven-acre Kosciuszko Park in Stamford on Monday after a more than $286,000 renovation project. The city got a $120,000 relief award from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. 

The project included restoration and re-pavement of about 700 feet of the walking path and reinforcement of the embankment at the waterfront park. 

A portion of the path used by walkers and cyclists collapsed into the harbor after strong waves caused erosion during the 2012 storm. 

City engineer Lou Casolo told the Stamford Advocate ( the park is now better able to withstand extreme weather.
