Meriden has over 3,000 acres of park land.  The total percentage of Meriden’s land devoted to parks is 17.6%, and no other city in New England can match that percentage!

The Parks Division is located in the Hubbard Park Maintenance Facility, but maintains no real “set” office hours.  Office hours are maintained at the Parks & Recreation Department office.
