Martha Stewart says anyone in the Hartford area this summer should check out the roses at Elizabeth Park Conservancy.
"If you’re planning to be in or around Hartford, Connecticut this summer, and want to see some of the most beautiful roses, I encourage you to visit the Elizabeth Park Conservancy," the lifestyle guru writes in The Martha Blog.
Stewart writes that Elizabeth Park has more than a hundred of acres of formal gardens, green space, recreation centers and walking trails.
In the blog, she notes that Elizabeth Park is home to the oldest public rose garden in the United States. The garden — 2½ acres with 475 beds and more than 15,000 rose bushes— was designed by Theodore Wirth in 1904.
