Fodor's Review

At the rolling 50-acre Brookside Gardens, the series of theme areas highlight roses, azaleas, flowers with particularly potent fragrance, and plants that attract butterflies, among many others. Two conservatories house seasonal displays and exotic tropicals throughout the year. The visitor center has an auditorium, classrooms for adults and children, a 5,000-volume horticulture library, a gift shop, an information booth, and horticulture-related works by local artists

on display.
