Pope Park

 Pope ParkOn November 26th, 1894 Colonel Albert A. Pope provided in his will a gift to the City of 73.0 acres of parkland.  The establishment of a park south of Park Street was provided on the condition that the City of Hartford assume all costs for highway, sewers, curbs and general infrastructure. Two additional acres were then added from Hartford real estate. In 1897, the City finished purchasing additional southern tracts of land bringing the total acreage to 90 acres.  Fourteen acres adjacent to the park were also allocated by the City for juvenile and orphan asylums.
