Attraction details
Reviewed May 20, 2014

If you are in Glendale on a sunny day this small park, art museum, Library, Japanese Garden and tea house are a great place to spend an hour or two. There is also a Doctors house which can be visited on Sundays and it's architecture is east lake Victorian style from about the 1880's. A wonderful place for a short walk and easy to get to.

Park for free. Bathrooms, water fountain, and vending machine available. Walk up past the old doctor's house and keep going. There are scrub jays, warblers, quail, orioles, acorn woodpeckers, hummingbirds, wrens, and more. The walk is uphill, so wear good shoes.

This is a must see park. The landscape is fab, the view of the city is even better when you take a hike in the mountains just north of the library. You simply must see this to believe it. The library is currently being renovated, however, it is one of the great wonders of Glendale, CA.

If you live in Glendale and have never visited Brand Park, you are really missing out. There is a lot of history associated with the main building as it is a mansion that was owned by the prominent family of Glendale and converted to a music library. Years ago I went to check out music records, now they have film (in the form of videos). However, my recent trips have been just to enjoy the park facilities adjoining the library. Be sure to see the Doctor's House (check as the hours are limited), a house from the Victorian era and the Japanese Tea House. During Jan. or Feb. the city of Glendale usually brings in tons of snow for the kids to play in. Also, there are trails behind the library where you can hike or mountain bike. In addition, there are meeting rooms that you can rent for an event. Bottom line...there is something for everyone!
