Brewster Gardens

Enjoy a tranquil walk through this collection of beautiful streams, bridges and grassy knolls.

Originally private property, Brewster Gardens offers a glimpse of what it might have felt like to roam the vast properties that once stretched throughout colonial New England. Brewster Gardens is noted for its 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) stream, Town Brook, which runs from the freshwater source of Jenney Pond out to Plymouth Harbor. Follow the nature walk alongside the brook and pass grand archways, crafted stonework and charming wooden bridges.

The gardens’ thickly wooded perimeter gives way to pristine lawns and trimmed shrubs beside ponds spaced throughout the area. Intense effort has gone into cultivating the lush plants here, including black-eyed Susans and bottlebrushes. Sit on one of the benches facing a quieter section of the Town Brook and watch for ducks paddling by. You’ll see why Brewster Gardens’ leafy beauty has made it the ideal place for weddings and wedding portraits.

Along the nature walk, notice the bronze and stainless steel sculptures, as well as the historical commemorative placards that explain the history of the gardens. As you approach Jenney Pond, follow the sound of cascades to Plimoth Grist Mill. See a reproduction of one of America’s first mills grinding corn. Stop for an ice cream. Reserve time to see Mayflower II, a full replica of the Mayflower, and Plymouth Rock. Both of these important historic sites are just a short walk away.

Brewster Gardens is free and open to the public year-round. Free parking is available at the Grist Mill. Follow the scenic walking tour along Plymouth Harbor, which leads directly to Brewster Gardens.

Although the colorful flowers are in full bloom only in spring, enjoy Brewster Gardens during any season. Marvel at the leaves as their colors change in autumn. In winter, admire the snow-crusted pines and spreads of untouched white powder. These are sights truly worthy of photos. No matter when you go, remember to bring a camera to save your memories for enjoyment later.
