This small park is operated mainly by volunteers. It is clean, neat and scenic. The greenhouse and community gardens are worth visiting. The staff is mainly volunteers who take great pride in their work. This was an enjoyable couple of hours to visit.

We were in a friends wedding, and they desided to have their wedding pictures here. Was so beautiful and cute. It’s a secret garden in the heart of new haven. It’s a must go to if your ever in new haven.

Love this park! It's quaint, cute & clean. It's out of the heart of the city which makes it a little less accessible but a little more special. It's also a great venue to watch their Shakespeare in the Park series.
