Brookside Gardens are located in Wheaton Regional Park at 1800 Glenallan Ave, Wheaton, MD 20902.
With its colorful plantings, shimmering ponds, and breathtaking landscapes, Brookside Gardens is often described as the jewel of Montgomery Parks. The Gardens were founded in 1969 and named for the winding brooks and streams that surround this extraordinary public display garden. The 50-acre property features intricately designed gardens with exquisite combinations of color, texture, scent, and scale that merge together to delight the senses – all easily viewed from tranquil walking trails, comfortable benches, and shady gazebos.

Brookside Gardens’ two conservatories house an intriguing tropical plant collection and seasonal plant displays, in addition to festive holiday shows.

A team of fourteen horticulturists, seasonal gardening staff, and more than 650 volunteers care for the 20,000-plus plants and the ever-changing gardens from design conception to crop production and ongoing maintenance.

Brookside Gardens hosts annual ticketed events, such as the captivating Wings of Fancy Live Butterfly & Caterpillar Exhibit and the amazing Garden of Lights display. Throughout the year the Gardens provide engaging learning opportunities for all ages, including classes, lectures, and symposiums.

The restorative nature of the Gardens, with its reflective quiet spaces and beautiful scenery, offers respite from the daily hustle and bustle. Come for a visit that will educate, inspire, and excite your imagination!
