Brookside Gardens Creating a Parking Garden for Visitors (VIDEO)
Bulldozers and excavators are making way for a new parking area for Brookside Gardens in the Wheaton Regional Park that won’t be your typical asphalt lot.
The more than $4 million project includes about 60 additional spaces for the cars plus about four acres of new plantings and water features. It’s all part of a larger master plan project for Brookside Gardens that also creates a new Glenallan Avenue entrance for the 45-acre facility. Krista Brick reports.
