Elizabeth Park is located at the corner of Prospect Avenue and Asylum Avenue on the Hartford-West Hartford line.  Our address is 1561 Asylum Avenue, West Hartford CT for GPS directions.

There are two entrances to the park: from the north side at Asylum Avenue or from the east side at Prospect Avenue. If entering from Prospect Avenue, the single-lane, one-way street is a beautiful drive around the rose garden.

Parking

Parking is available throughout the park. The gardens and grounds are best enjoyed on foot, although taking the drive from the entrance of Prospect Avenue is a good way for those with limited mobility to see the rose garden.

There is ample parking at Elizabeth Park on most days. However, for events and concerts, the parking fills up quickly. Parking is allowed on the roads in the park in designated spots. There are three parking lots in the park. One is near the greenhouses, and one is near the picnic area. A small lot is located at Sunrise Overlook right off Prospect Avenue. There are many parking spots along the road in the Western Loop.

Parking is also allowed on Prospect Avenue and many of the side streets. There is some parking allowed on Asylum Avenue near the Little League fields. Please obey the parking signs and do not park on the grass areas in the park.

Public Transportation

Elizabeth Park can be reached via the Hartford City Bus system. For information about schedules or routes consult CT Transit or call 860.247.5329.
