I love walking in the park. The gardens are beautiful. I love the sound of water it’s so relaxing and calming. It is also adjacent to wheaton regional park. No dogs are allowed in the garden 😁

From the Brookside Gardens, I walked towards this attraction, following the signage I saw along the paved pathways. During my walk, I came across the BUTTERFLY GARDEN, plus the other Gardens, passed huge trees and the Harper Cabin before reaching this Center. On display inside the Center are turtles (inside the tanks), stuffed animals that are native to the area, wall exhibits, etc. There is a small meeting room and public toilets inside. The staff are friendly and gave me directions on how I could go back to my car parked at the Welcome Center.

A wonderful mini park that bursts with color in the spring. Nice paved paths for leisurely walks to admire the beauty of nature.

I went for a craft get together in the building. I noticed that there are things like an exhibit of live bees in between glass. You can watch them as they fly out of the building. Some taxidermy animals and some turtles.
