India has the Taj Mahal, but Connecticut has the Taj Mahal of Rose Gardens. Built and named in honor of the wife of Charles Pond, who donated his estate to the city, Elizabeth Park is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon basking in sunshine, exploring the many paths lined with exotic varieties of roses.

Additionally, greenhouses, tennis courts, and picnic areas add to the charm of the park that covers over two acres. Let the scent of roses wash over you, as you serenely take in the lovely scenery.
