Brookside Gardens

Come with us to visit Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD.  (This event has been rescheduled from the summer to a bit cooler time in October).  There are plenty of sights at Brookside that sound great:  the Outdoor Butterfly Garden, the Aquatic Garden, the Rose Garden, the Japanese Style Garden, the Fragrance Garden, and others.  For the full list of the different gardens and the visitor's map, click here.

We will meet at the visitor's center at 1:00.  Admission to the gardens is free.

Getting there:  Directions to Brookside are here.  Brookside is also one mile from the Glenmont Metro for those of you who prefer public transportation.

For this event, please keep your RSVP up to date.  I recommend downloading the iPhone meetup app, so that people can keep others posted about attendance.  Thanks for your help!

    I enjoyed the gardens, and the group, very much! It was a lovely day and perfect weather. Would love to go back in the Spring when everything is blooming and the butterfly garden is open. This was my first group event and a special thanks to Yuna and Laura for making me and my guest, Yen, feel so welcome.

    Good venue... atrocious parking. Missed you all! Thought I'd upload some photos I took. Spent most of my time at the tea house and conservatory. Had a fun time practicing my photography. I hope you all enjoyed your time too!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
