Stanley Quarter Park is located in the northeast quarter of New Britain, diagonally across from Connecticut Central State University (CCSU). New Britain purchased the land between 1914-1921. The park spans 144 acres which include beautiful spring-fed ponds with fountains, walking trails, soccer and baseball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, skateboard park, & walking trails. In the spring the ponds are stocked with trout for the annual fishing derby. The annual New Britain fireworks are held at Stanley Quarter Park, usually on July 4th.
