Springdale is a section or neighborhood in Stamford, Connecticut. It is known around Stamford to have a small-town feel in the middle of a mid-sized city and is often considered the last village of Stamford. Springdale offers both older, relatively modest homes in the lower Springdale area along with more expensive real estate toward the woodsy and affluent North Stamford section.

It is on the east side of the city, north of the Glenbrook section and south of Newfield. To its east is northern Darien and to its west is the Belltown neighborhood.
