Come see the West Hartford Pollinator Pathway! With many gardens to visit, you can spend the summer exploring parks and trails, and enjoying the flowers and native pollinators. The birds, bees, butterflies, and other insects will be happy to greet you in the gardens! 

The Town of West Hartford, along with partner organizations, is committed to the creation and preservation of pollinator-friendly spaces. With four town parks, a trail system, and many of the local schools investing in specific pollinator - friendly spaces, there are plenty of places to visit to see and experience!

Town Gardens

Westmoor Park Tall-grass Meadow
119 Flagg Raod, West Hartford, CT 06040

This mult-acre meadow is a haven for birds, bees, butterflies, and more! Wander the paths through native tall-grasses and flowers, often growing over your head! In the summer months, this meadow is a riot of yellows, purples, and blues, as the native flowering plants and grasses bloom.

Spice Bush Swamp
201 Mountain Road, West Hartford, CT 06117

This garden was designed, donated, and planted by the West Hartford Garden Club in 2020. Along with the specific Pollinator Garden patch, they are also planting native shrubs and flowering plants along the waterway.

Fern Park
567 Fern St, West Hartford, CT 06117

Planned and planted as an Eagle Scout project, this garden will bring flowers and pollinators to a popular park in West Hartford! Enjoy the blooms and buzzes, before you head off to the splash pads or tennis courts.

Westmoor Park Pollinator Garden
119 Flagg Road, West Hartford, CT 06117
