On sunny days in spring, there is nothing better than setting up a hammock in a park. Bushnell park has loads of space to do just that, and it is surrounded by the new state house, the carousel, and a cool looking bridge.

America's oldest publicly funded park! During warmer months, you can ride the awesome vintage 1914 carousel. There are many monuments as well as the stunning Corning Fountain that you can explore on a casual stroll.

Super fun park to walk through or take the kids! They have a carousel and an amphitheater and their winter activities are always free or very cheap! Only downside is lack of safe parking. However, public transit flies all around it so if you opt for that, no parking worries at all!

Bushnell Park doesn't have much in the way of landscaping, but the stone archway is tremendous. It's where the Hartford Marathon finishes. Additionally in the summertime it is a great spot to bring the kids. If I remember correctly, they bring in a carousel.
