The Flowers of Elizabeth Park

May 05, 2022  •  4 Comments

Elizabeth Park is a city park located in Hartford and West Hartford CT.  It covers 102 acres and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Opened in 1897, it contains the oldest municipal rose garden in the United States consisting of 15,000 bushes of 800 rose varieties.  The park also contains additional gardens with a diverse assortment of flowers, greenhouses, bowling greens, tennis courts, softball field, picnic grove and a scenic pond.  Anyone that loves the outdoors or enjoys nature will truly find this park a sight to behold!  For me being a photographer, I find Elizabeth Park to be a "photographic goldmine!"  There is so much beauty all around that I come away with loads of great photos no matter how often I visit the park.  I stopped by there today and the roses are not in bloom yet (still too early) so I went to a different garden area where the flowers were in full bloom.  The conditions were perfect because I arrived very early to avoid the crowds and the weather forecast called for comfortable temperatures with clear skies and no rain.  I took full advantage and captured some great photos of the colorful flowers in the well manicured garden.  If you have never taken a trip to Elizabeth Park, you owe it to yourself to see this historic park in person and enjoy all that it has to offer.  Below are some photos that I took while I was there.

Oscar, these flower photos are simply exquisite! They have such a dreamy quality to them but also such vibrancy! I almost feel like I can reach out and touch the delicate texture of each petal! Your excitement about this park has inspired me to go there and see it in person for the first time. I can't wait! Thank you for sharing your passion and the gift of your photography.

Best wishes,
Amelia

I live near the park and walk my dog there nearly every day. The park is beautiful as you say but I am awestruck by these fantastic photos! I would love to have a few framed on my walls. Are these flower photos available to purchase? If so, please let me know how to do it.
Your photography is amazing!

Thank you,
Maria
