Meriden 2020, Bringing It Together

Top 10 "Name the Park" Entries Selected

The City recently concluded the "Name the Park Contest", which ran from October 5, 2015 through January 31, 2016.  The contest yielded 750 entries and over 400 unique park names.  A staff committee recently met to review all of the entries and has recommended ten names for consideration by City Council:  

  • Downtown Crossing
  • Harbor Brook Green
  • Meriden Green
  • Meriden Hub
  • Meriden on the Green
  • Pilgrim Harbor Park
  • Renaissance Park
  • Silver Bridge Park
  • Silver City Commons
  • Silver City Crossing

The Council will meet and will select one winning entry from the list.  One winner will win $1000 and have their entry become the official name of the new park.  If more than one person submits the same name, the winning entry will be selected by a random drawing from the names of those that submitted the winning entry.  

For more information, contact the City of Meriden Office of Economic Development.
