The Meriden Green has been the recipient of numerous awards since its completion, including a CT main Street Catalyst Award. The $14 million conversion of a brownfield to a multi-purpose park is also competing for a Phoenix Award from the federal Environmental Protection Agency.
Beyond awards and recognition, the green is also getting a great deal of use. The amphitheater is attracting local events and celebrations from local school concerts to this summer’s Twilight Summer Music Series which includes concerts as well as food trucks on the green.
“The Meriden Green offers a perfect setting for outdoor community events,” said Lisa Catherine, president and executive producer of Concerts With Causes. “Especially valuable to CWC is the beautiful amphitheater available for our music performances.”
