Chase Park, Wednesday Morning, 6/24/20

Waterbury, Connecticut

The park is part of the Town Plot section which asserts, with a plaque at the park entrance, that it's the city's oldest neighborhood. It lies high above the Naugatuck river, the top of the west bank. What you can see through the very hazy air in the distance is the ridge line on the east side of the river.

The monument, built in 1930, memorializes "The Pilgrim Fathers" although the frieze is actually quite a bit more complex than that.
