  • Brookside Gardens has been our favorite park for relaxing walks with the wife and family. Always beautifully maintained, with the most amazing collection of exotic plants. The butterfly exhibit, wings of fancy, was very interesting with wide variety of butterflies. Thae have walking trails and a lake with other wildlife observation areas. It's just a great place to spend time. The best part is that it's free to get in.
  • Quiet and beautifully maintained grounds including wonderful outside gardens as well as a butterfly exhibition. There is plentiful outdoor seating throughout for taking it all in; it is absolutely calming and sublime. Also highly recommended is a beautiful Japanese-styled tea house near a small central pond, which affords a remarkable view of the grounds as well as offering a glimpse of turtles swimming nearby. There is also a beautiful monument to the victims of the DC Sniper attacks, which not only names the deceased but honors their loss with a warm sentiment suitable for reflection as you walk. Lovely place, worth the trip.
