The park is in a nice location of Hartford, by the Capitol. Everything was clean, police were helpful.

We went on a Monday and it was pleasant but the carousel was closed. The walk was nice but there are a lot of homeless laying around the park or hanging out on the park benches. We didn't spend much time there. We won't be back unless there is a free concert or festival.

Bushnell Park is one of the city's gems! It is simply beautiful any time of year! The antique carousel is a must! It is not open in the winter. The jazz fest throughout the summer is not to be missed. There is always something going on and when there's not just nice to go down and take inthe park.
