“Calm, enjoyable outdoors spot, any time of year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Visit Brookside Gardens in the spring or fall for a lovely walk; visit during the winter holidays for a super holiday light display; explore the visitor's center and gift shop. Adjacent to Wheaton Park, this is a serene spot for a walk alone, as a couple, or with a family. Stroller and walker/wheelchair friendly, so any age(s) can enjoy the lovely plants, walkways, water, and bridges.

“Take a free stroll in Brookside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Not a bad place to unwind and get away from everything. Can walk the grounds at your leisure, free parking and a little gift shop.

What a fantastic experience! The butterflies and the outside gardens were so enjoyable. Easy to park and enter, a really nice gift shop that was affordable.
