About Brook Street Park
Brook Street Park is one of the most popular parks in Lafayette.

There are also plenty of picnic benches where families have been known to spend entire days on long summer afternoons.
The grounds at Brook Street Park provide wonderful scenery year round - during the winter there's a large lagoon near the playgrounds perfect for ice skating or just watching snow fall from afar when it feels as though you're living inside a snow globe.
