We used to go here back in the 70’s, late at night, before the gates were installed. The night sky was so beautiful, looking at all the stars, there’d be 4 or 5 cars, sometimes 20 cars. All of us teenagers, either looking at stars, or at each other, listening to music, doing whatever teenagers do… it was a different time. Summertime… during the winter the road was plowed, but it’d get icy, and we had mostly bald tires, so it was pretty dangerous. What a wonderful place. Before the trees got so tall we could see all the way to Springfield to the North, Long Island Sound on a clear day to the South. It is a gem of Meriden.
