Elizabeth Park remains open to the public.
The City of Hartford has closed all parking lots in City Parks in an effort to prevent overcrowding. NO vehicles are allowed in the Park with the exception of those belonging to the Department of Public Works, Conservancy staff, and contractors. Parking is available on select streets.
A friendly reminder: dogs must continue to be leashed at all times for everyone's safety.
Help us keep Elizabeth Park a beautiful, safe place for everyone to enjoy.
