"The fall brings the uniquely ‘New England’ version of fall colors"

The best time to view the roses is usually from the second week of June to about the middle of July. But the park is beautiful all year long. There are incredible tulips and daffodils in the early spring. Following the peak of the rose garden are the wonderful displays of annuals and perennials that take us through early fall. You must check out the huge dahlias in late summer. The fall brings the uniquely ‘New England’ version of fall colors due to the large variety of new and old trees. Snow fall in winter creates yet another level of beauty in the park.
