Highland Road Park Observatory


Located in BREC's Highland Road Park, you will find a 20-inch reflecting telescope inside a retractable dome which is in the octagonal main building.This telescope is used to discover dozens of asteroids. We offer "Friday Night Lecture Series" - free, entertaining and intelligent science talks. The lectures are aimed toward a general adult audience. The "Evening Sky Viewing" - usually Saturday nights are the best time to bring children under eleven, who may be interested in looking through the scopes but not necessarily in sitting for a lecture. There is the Science Academy, Solar Viewing, Stargazers Camp, Field Trips and much more.
