The next Nature Center we checked out was Brookside Nature Center. We’ve been to Brookside Gardens, but didn’t know about this place. Both are part of Wheaton Regional Park, and a park map revealed a Carousel & Miniature Train, too!! Rebecca came with me so that I wouldn’t have a repeat of the Cabin John playground situation. I’ve decided the ratio needs to be 1:1 for adult to boy!
Playroom in the Nature Center
Not a display, but still interesting // Animals from our back yard!
The only live animal there // Ramp Running!
Historic Herschell Spillman Company’s Carousel c. 1915
One of three zebras // Thanks for the ride!
Miniature train ride…this one goes over a bridge and through a tunnel!
The most captivating part of the playground for them…
I eventually talked them into slides and rides
If I push harder, maybe we’ll get somewhere!
