 Meriden’s Hanover Pond Trail was officially recognized as a Connecticut Greenway. Joe Zajac, chairman of the Meriden Linear Trail Advisory Committee, said the distinction signifies that the trail off Oregon Road, which is part of the linear trail system, is among the “unique set of trails that the state recognizes as valuable.”  “The trail brings people closer to the river and helps foster an appreciation for nature,” said Peter Picone, a Department of Energy and Environmental Protection wildlife biologist and board member of the Quinnipiac River Watershed Association. After the brief ceremony, Picone and Lyman Hall High School sophomore Briana Gagnon led participants on a “tree walk” that featured eight stops at which they identified and discussed tree species. They also shared some of Hanover Pond’s history.
