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.

quiet, serene, lovely trails. Simply beautiful in the autumn but I love to visit any time of the year. Lamentation Mountain is very nice, but the hike along the ridge is gorgeous! Not an easy trail to do the ridge but there are plenty of less intensity. So worth the climb if you can do it.

This is a great place to bring your dog for a walk. The trails circle the reservoir and there are more challenging trails that lead to the top of a hill where you will have a spectacular view. All of this in Meriden!

Heard there was a drowning and they never found the body - We never swim now or focus on the water. Nobody wants to find that
