Brookside Gardens in Wheaton has long been a favorite local spot to enjoy a beautiful summer day.
But along with the birdsongs you can now hear the sounds of a bulldozer.
Renovation work began in May on the Gude Garden portion of Brookside Gardens. The goal is to improve water quality by stabilizing the banks, dredging the ponds and repairing the dams, according to a notice posted at the construction site.
The work is anticipated to last 8 months.
Meanwhile, the other sections of Brookside Gardens remain open.
