These gardens are well kept and a tranquil little oasis not far from the main street and sometimes busy waterfront. The statues are interesting to look at and read about and the gardens are well looked after. It is interesting to see the stream and note its importance to the area.

Nice walk by the stream flowing down from the Grist Mill to the sea. Having read about how much work has gone into cleaning the area up and creating the lovely gardens there now, they are a credit to the people of Plymouth.

Walk along the creek either to the waterfront, or back towards where you may have parked. This place is quiet and nice. Kept clean by the town and neat to walk by the creek.

The gardens were named after William Brewster, an Elder of the community and incorporate his garden plot. The town brook runs through them and this is where the Pilgrims got their water.

Went there with a large group for family photos. Great place to take pictures with a large or small group. the water and the benches give it a nice relaxed feel. I would go back and take more. right near the shopping and restaurants near the waterfront.

Historical and educational, several monuments grace the gardens. Beautiful landscapes, flowering plants and the town brook running through it... follow the path up the brook to find the historic grist mill and a neat little eatery/pub.

I have enjoyed going to this park many times. There are benches and plaques telling interesting facts about the history of the area. AT the end of the walk is a working Gristmill and you are only a block away from Burial Hill. Great for taking pictures too.
