A Bushnell Park For All & For All Seasons

You love the Park’s open and peaceful space in the middle of the city, using it as a place to meet friends, or go for a walk or run under the shade of historic trees. Children love the Carousel, the playground and our movie series. If you’re a Hartford history buff, our Arch and Park tours and signage by our monuments tell a rich story of Hartford’s past. Music is ever present in the warmer months with our Hopgood Lord Summer Concert Series, Monday Night Jazz and the Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz. Winter brings the opportunity to enjoy free ice skating thanks to Winterfest, and a chance to warm up with a hot chocolate and a Carousel ride on the weekends.

We love that the Park is your special place but need your help to keep it vibrant, green, and growing.  Your donation  — in any amount — makes a difference.


Thank you and we wish you a happy and healthy holiday season and look forward to seeing you in the Park!
