If your looking for a fantastic outing for young and old go to Brookside Gardens Wings of Fancy. This butterfly exhibit is educational and my granddaughters loved it.

There is a 1 mile paved path around Brookside Gardens in the Wheaton Regional Park. Therefore, it is imminently walkable. There are lakes, rose gardens, other flower gardens, an indoor botanical garden, and a butterfly house.
