  • 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...  more »
  • A wonderful mini park that bursts with color in the spring. Nice paved paths for leisurely walks to admire the beauty of nature.  more »
  • Butterflies and mindfulness. Spent almost 3 hours there. The nature center is cool , with a great birdwatching window. The butterfly exhibit is fun. Try to go on a cloudy day as it gets toasty in the conservatory in summer. Wonderful plants. A relaxing place in a hectic county.
  • It was a beautiful experience. Went with my kids and they had fun. Nice and friendly staff. Walked the trail.... you dont have to worry about getting lost cause there are signs. Went to the pond, fed the ducks. It's family friendly. Visit with your loved ones.
