Locals describe Hubbard Park as West Meriden's crown jewel. Out-of-towners come from miles and sometimes states away to visit Castle Craig and the park's 1,800 acres of woodsy trails and recreational land. The park has tennis courts, a bandshell, a swimming pool, playground and Mirror Lake, which is populated with waterfowl in the summer and ice skaters in the winter. The park is home to Meriden's signature events, the Daffodil Festival in Spring and the Festival of Silver Lights each winter. The park's iconic stone castle, Castle Craig, was constructed in 1900 and sits upon East Peak. It is navigable by foot or by car from Hubbard Park below.
