Things to Do in Sanford
One of the best ways to enjoy Sanford is to take a stroll. The city has organized several walking trails through the historic and wooded areas. One takes you through Sanford’s downtown, with its mill buildings, grand houses and public buildings. Another leads you through the village of Springvale, with its former factories and mansions. Others will take you along the Mousam River or into woodlands near the Sanford High School.
Looking for something more sporting? Head over to historic Goodall Park for a baseball game by the local Sanford Mainers. The team, part of the New England Collegiate Baseball League, has players from universities and colleges. They play each summer against regional teams like the Keene Swamp Bats, Mystic Schooners and Ocean State Waves. Or try your hand at some mini golf – or just treat yourself to ice cream at Shaw’s Ridge Farm.
