Hubbard Park
Hubbard Park was a gift to the City of Meriden from industrialist and philanthropist Walter Hubbard in 1901. Consulting with landscape architect John Olmstead, son of Frederick law Olmstead, designer of New York's Central Park, Mr. Hubbard relied heavily on Olmstead's penchant for the rustic style which is the hallmark design of this premier open space. Mr. Hubbard's vision created a legacy still enjoyed today with Hubbard Park being a preferred location for social, recreational and cultural events throughout the year. Covering an area more than 1800 acres, Hubbard Park is on the National Register of Historic Places.

This park is given upon condition that the said described land shall be used in perpetuity by the people as a public park for their pleasure and recreation.- Walter Hubbard, 1901
