The Green is praised as one of the most attractive downtown parks in New England. This two-acre park is often used for political rallies and cultural programs. On the Green is the Veterans Memorial which commemorates those who have served their country, and the Clock-on-the-Green, a 15-foot granite clock tower. This timepiece found a home after Charles Colley, the Chamber president from 1913 to 1917, lobbied fiercely to have it placed on the Green. To this day, it is still referred to as "Colley's Clock."
Also on the Green is the Carrie Welton Fountain. Caroline Welton was the only daughter of wealthy 19th century businessman Joseph Welton. Carrie, who loved animals, often rode her black stallion Knight on the Green. In 1874, Ms. Welton's father was accidentally killed by a kick to the head from Knight. Later the wealthy Carrie bequeathed a large sum to the ASPCA. She also stipulated that Knight be memorialized with a statue, hence Waterbury's famous "brass horse" on the Green.
