On our way back from Annapolis, we made a pit stop at Brookside Gardens. Situated within Wheaton Regional Park, this 50 acre garden is a must see. The admission is free.
My first impression of the park is how peaceful it was and well maintained. They have gazebos, ponds, Japanese tea garden (small turtles swimming that you can see from the garden), and areas to rent for special events such as birthdays, weddings and such. We strolled our way around the area, taking photos of the different flowers and plants. I noticed there were a few joggers as well passing by. This would be perfect for it and for all you plant lovers.
