  • It was a very lovely place, even though I came here in fall season, the landscape and scenery was gorgeous. It inspired relaxation, lovely place of gather around with close friends and family. I would totally recommend this park for people who isn't from around here like I am! Loved it! Can't wait to visit it on Spring/Summer season.

  • It is a wonderful place to spend your evenings. You will get drawn into the gardens with a huge variety and creative flower patterns and the pond. I feel it is very addictive in a good sort of a way.

  • Roses were still in bloom and fragrant Thursday. Sun was strong mid-day.Great for walking.

  • What a tranquil place to visit! From eating lunch on a blanket walking the trail to just tossing a ball with friends.the atmosphere is so inviting and it's pet friendly!! Let's not forget the ice cream parlor and parking is free and abundant.

  • This park is beautiful. There are gardens, fields, koi pobd, an amazing view of the Hartford skyline and the oldest rose garden in the US. You will often see weddings here when the weather is nice. Great for a picnic and there is also a restaurant.
