Brookside Nature Center - Nature Play Space

The Brookside​ Nature Exploration Area in Wheaton, is adjacent to the Brookside Nature Center. It includes an outdoor play area that was built with the help of Eagle Scouts, volunteers, and interns. This play area has lots of spaces for visitors to explore and play in the natural world.​
