Very scenic park. Great walking trails. Great views. I believe if you want to go fishing there you need a special stamp from Meriden town hall (so look into that).

This is a family friendly park with nice, easy trails. The water is pleasant, although it is not for recreational use. My only complaint is regarding unleashed dogs. Not everyone likes dogs. Just because you're so enamored with your pet doesn't mean everyone else is...More

I am an avid hiker and this trail is one of my favorites! The views are stunning and the loop is an easy trail to follow. The steep part of the trail has been redone with switchbacks, which was helpful. I highly recommend this trail!

Great park, has very easy hiking trials to get to the top with some awskme views. Also is really good for catching small fish with the kids, like perch, also some smallmouth bass as well. Its a good time.

Guiffrida Park is another of Meriden's little gems. Tucked away from the city, you can stroll around the reservoir or hike up Chauncey Peak for some great views of the city and south towards Sleeping Giant and the Long Island Sound.
