Elizabeth Park is on the line between the City of Hartford and the Town of West Hartford. It hosts a renowned rose garden. The City and the Town provide funds for basic maintenance, but the Friends of Elizabeth Park give their money and their time to bring the gardens to a high standard. The bed in the foreground holds American Pride roses. I contribute to the Friends so they can maintain this plot in memory of my parents.
Roses are at their peak in late June and moving into July. The Park is the scene of Wednesday evening concerts and weekend weddings.
