Most people believe that city tax dollars pay for the upkeep of the gardens and grounds in Elizabeth Park. Unfortunately, the city of Hartford is less and less able to support the upkeep of city parks. The Conservancy raises private money to pay for the staff, supplies, and support services needed to maintain Elizabeth Park.

With your generous support, the Conservancy can keep the Park a beautiful place with its many gardens, greenhouses, walks, trails and lawns, for today and future generations.

Our routine garden maintenance and staff, summer gardeners and contractors, replacement plantings, and supply costs are around $200,000 a year.

Your gift helps us make the Park the best it can be. You gift truly makes a difference!
