This (believe it or not) converted gas station that was brilliantly planted is the center of culture in Washington, showing outdoor movies, art shows, lectures, live music and community fun. There is a looong smooth carved sculpture of the river by Mark Mennin that feels great to lounge on.
Located in the center of Washington Depot, and of Litchfield County too, The Judy Black Park is a place where the community comes together. It is a place that welcomes artists, musicians, actors, dancers and audiences of all ages. It is home to outdoor movies, farmers markets, children’s arts and crafts, holiday celebrations, tributes to town volunteers, art exhibits, and much more. We take pride in the park and the evolutionary role it plays in our community and we are grateful for the support of the donors, event sponsors, and volunteers who helped to create this place that plays the literal and figurative role as the town square at the very crossroads of our community.
