Elizabeth Park Rose Garden

The garden was owned by a wealthy industrialist, Charles H. Pond and given to the City of Hartford to be a horticultural park named after his wife. The City hired the the Olmsted firm to design the park and Theodore Wirth to design the garden. He planted roses 'to please the people' and there now over 15,000 roses in the garden (seen at their best in June).
