, plenty of running around space, and a couple of nice hills for climbing up and rolling down. Brand Park
also has several pleasant picnic areas, and lighted playing fields
and basketball courts
The Brand Library and Galleries
is a Moorish-style mansion with galleries, art studios, and performance facilities. It's the site for many of the afterschool and weekend classes
offered by Glendale Parks, Recreation and Community Services
