The tulips in the spring are stunning. Haven't seen the rose gardens yet, but I've heard great things!

The place is filled with gorgeous vintage looking architecture objects, such as stone arch bridges, glass greenhouse, and of course the rose garden. Seems like a prefect place for a wedding.

Elizabeth Park is a treasure on the border of Hartford and West Hartford. The rose garden is amazing in spring and early summer and the perennial gardens and annual gardens are equally wonderful. This is a beautiful park and a great place for a picnic or stroll. There is a very nice restaurant in the park as well.

Great park. Go to the rose garden you may enter upon a wedding or photo shoot. Also they serve great ice cream by the pond house. Great for a walk or bike ride.

During the growing season there is an ever changing vista of well thought out flower beds in addition to the many varieties of roses. There are small parks within the park, ie Asian garden, etc Visit the duck pond, gazebos, green houses, play with your dog in the fields. Play tennis, get a softball game together, or jog the track.... More

My favorite time to visit is June when the roses are all blooming and the perennial & annual gardens look fabulous. Flower sale in the Spring a must! Concerts in Summer. Just love it!

Love Elizabeth Park when the roses are out. There are so many rose types and you can even purchase types you like to plant in your own rose garden. Sometimes there is music out on the small gazebo or local talent just hanging out for the day playing to whomever is listening. Its a great place to just hang out... More

There are several annual gardens beside the rose gardens. They are well planned and cared for . Take time to walk the many trails where you will discover hidden gems. If you need a rest or just want to take in the beauty of it all, benches are everywhere. There is a large open area where free concerts are held... More

The rose garden was beautiful when we were there. Unfortunately the arches weren't in bloom yet, but it was still beautiful. Only a short walk from the parking lot. It would have been nice if there was a (small) playground near the parking lot as well.

When I lived and worked in Hartford, I used to take my lunch breaks here and come with friends at all times of year just to walk around and enjoy this sanctuary in the city. Of course, June and July are awesome when the gardens are in full bloom-- I can't say enough about it. We recently took family here... More
