Brookwood Park

3250 Withers Avenue Lafayette, CA 94549


Brookwood Park is a six-acre park which includes a picnic area, BBQ pits, a playground and a basketball court. The main draw of this spot, though, is the Brookwood Park Labyrinth. The labyrinth took almost a year to build and fundraise, and a group of volunteers eventually completed it in June 2015. The concept was conceived by Kindred At Home Hospice people, intended as a space to host an annual service for families with members who have been through hospice treatment. This acts as the ideal public place for quiet meditation during the rest of the year.

This park is a bit of a hidden gem. Not super viewable from the street which is nice as it doesn't seem to attract huge crowds like some other parks in the area.  The park itself is beautiful with lots of dense trees and a really nice grass area. Overall it is very well maintained and clean. The park is dog-friendly though use caution here. There is a leash policy but many people have their dogs off leash here. They have a "take one leave one" system for poop bags. There are restrooms but they are porta potties so not great for kids.  The paths are clear and not paved so if you have kids and are using a stroller make sure it can easily move through wood chips and gravel.  If you enter the park from Withers the playground and basketball court are both to the far right.

The playground is listed for children 5-12. You can bring your toddlers and it’s fine to let them play as long as you keep an eye on them. The equipment is high up so don’t let them play unattended for long and make sure to supervise the children if they are under five.  The play structure itself has five slides and two dedicated rock climbing areas which your kids will surely enjoy!  There aren't benches in the play area but there is a nice retaining wall around it that is good for parents and caregivers to take a rest.  Overall a great park and you will be returning here for sure!
