The future Hartford Botanical Garden is to be located on a portion of Hartford’s Colt Park along Wethersfield Avenue.

The 18-acre site is part of the original gardens and grounds of Armsmear, the historic Colt Family estate, built in the 1850’s. TSKP STUDIO was engaged to develop a visionary master plan incorporating community interests and needs relative to HBG programs. The master plan envisions gardens that address three major themes: Heritage, Urban Horticulture, and Ecologies of the region, and will provide opportunities for both enjoyment and education for City residents and the region.

The program suggests about 15,000 sq. ft. accommodated within the existing buildings on the site. The remaining program areas will be included in the two new structures: a working greenhouse and a conservatory, consisting of four glass-enclosed plant rooms and large multi-purpose reception hall.
