Notes:
According to Glenn Weaver's book, "Hartford, An Illustrated History of Connecticut's Capital," Pope Park, Elizabeth Park , Keney Park, and Goodwin Park (named for then-Park Commissioner Reverend Francis Goodwin) were all created at about the same time - 1895 / 1896 - in an effort to have a parks system in Hartford that would circle the city, much like the Fenway system in Boston. Central to Goodwin park is a large parterre garden laid out on a circle, consisting of a series of rectangular beds separated by grass pathways. Radiating from the circle are additional rectangular beds with tall rose bowers at the far side.
Person(s) associated with the property and garden include(s): Reverend Francis Goodwin.
