In the summer months on the weekends it can get a bit crazy in the gardens. Weddings proms and special events are often lined up to get photos taken in the rose gardens. If you can go during the off hours that is much more enjoyable. Stunning opportunities for photography . Pro or iphone makes no difference if you love... More

This rose garden can't be beat! Many varieties to walk around and enjoy. Restaurant in the park is lovely, although a but pricey, and open all year round. In the summer, the outdoor concerts are enjoyable, free and open to the public. A Hartford treasure!

Known for its amazing rose gardens, peaking in June, but offering so much more. My favorite is the summer concert series, hundreds of folks of all different colors, shapes and sizes, from all walks of life, from all around greater Hartford and beyond, converge to listen to music, run in the grass, dance with strangers and drink wine out of...

I had the pleasure of attending two free outdoor concerts here last summer and the park was lovely. It was clean, not overly crowded and we could hear the music loud and clear. I'm looking forward to returning this summer.

Beautiful in the summer. The rose garden is the highlight of this park. If you don't like animals, don't go walking there because there are a lot of people walking around with dogs.

I love Elizabeth Park year-round, but especially in the summer. We enjoy the summer Concert Series on Wednesday evenings. Our four- legged baby also loves being at Elizabeth Park.
