Separate play space for 2-5 year olds (tot lot). Great park with more play areas than you can imagine. Play equipment includes endless climbing structures, swings, giant slides, a sand castle and much more. Children especially like the old fashioned carousel and a train ride that goes through the park (only open in the summer). Other amenities include picnic areas, Brookside Nature Center, Brookside Gardens, a lake, ice rink, indoor/outdoor tennis courts, lighted ball fields, trails, and Wheaton Stables. Plenty of shade.
