Drink in a Bird’s Eye View at Hubbard Park
March 1, 2016 | trioonline
Hubbard Park's namesake Walter Hubbard not only donated most of the 150 acres on which the park now resides (the rest were a gift from the state of Connecticut to the city of Meriden), but was also responsible for the park's main attraction, the Castle Craig Tower. Wealthy manufacturing mogul Walter Hubbard christened the tower as part of Meriden's landscape in 1900, and people still enjoy views from its observation deck today.
From the stone tower in Hubbard Park, you can look out over the sprawling greenery that is Meriden and the surrounding towns and cities. You can also come to the park throughout the year for seasonal events, such as the Daffodil Festival in the spring and the holiday light extravaganza all winter long, as well as many other festivals and activities.
