Visitors to Brandywine Park can enjoy a stroll or jog along the river, a picnic lunch, and many other activities among the park's monuments, formal gardens, and natural areas. Nearby is the 12-acre Brandywine Zoo, a popular destination for families with small children.

If you visit the zoo, be sure to check out the interactive murals inside the Education Center. Each one displays a different habitat; either a tropical rainforest, wetland, deciduous forest, or alpine mountain.

Brandywine Park offers two off-leash dog areas. One is located uphill from the zoo's education building. The other is on the opposite side of the Brandywine River, near the Van Buren Street bridge.
