Tulip Time at Park Place

Beautiful garden bridge in springtimeIf there’s one thing that is welcomed by everyone every spring in the Northeast, it’s tulips and daffodils. When they push through the soil, weathering spring snowstorms, it’s a sign that the end of another long winter is on the horizon. When the tulips and daffodils put out their blooms, spring has officially sprung!

We spend this blog telling you about all the great things that are so close to you when you live at Park Place. So, for April put on those Easter bunny ears, munch on a few Peeps, and read on about Elizabeth Park Conservancy and their famed Robert A. Prill Tulip Garden. It’s THE place for tulip viewing every spring in Hartford.
