The Spring Greenhouse Sale helps support Elizabeth Park Conservancy in its mission to maintain, restore and protect the gardens, grounds, and buildings in Elizabeth Park. Home to America’s oldest public rose garden, Elizabeth Park opened to the public in the spring of 1897 on property donated to the City of Hartford by Charles Pond, in honor of his wife Elizabeth. The Park is on the national register of historic places and offers more than 100 acres of formal gardens, green space, recreational facilities, walking loops, and the Pond House Café. Elizabeth Park is open to the public year-round, from dawn to dusk. Elizabeth Park Conservancy was founded in 1977.
