Schedule a Group Tour
Do you want your group to experience Brookwood in action, and learn about our citizens’ innovative educational and enterprise programs? If so, then we recommend your group take this inspirational and informational tour. You will be amazed at our citizens’ accomplishments and their growing community. You will see how Brookwood is changing the way the world views the learning and earning potential of adults with special needs…one tour group at a time!
Our well-trained volunteer tour guide will take you on a 1 hour walking tour of Brookwood’s campus and facilities. You will see the Worship Center, residential Inn, Handcrafts enterprise building, activities building and horticulture greenhouses. For groups with ambulatory concerns who arrive on a bus, the tour guide will narrate a driving tour through the community. All group tours end at the Gift & Garden Center and Cafe.
Group tours can be scheduled Monday through Friday at 9:45a.m. Reservations are required (see below for HOW).
A tour is given for a group with 10 persons or more. A group of less than 10 persons may be added to an existing group tour.
Your tour starts in the Worship Center at our central campus. Directions to Brookwood: From Interstate 10, take Brookshire Exit 731 which is FM 1489 (Koomey/Simonton Road). Proceed south on FM 1489 for about 1 mile. On your right you will pass the entrance to the Gift & Garden Center and Cafe, and will continue driving south until you see Brookwood’s main entrance with the flagpole. Turn right into the entrance and you will see the Worship Center ahead. Proceed to the right. Parking for cars and buses is provided in the lot to the right of the Worship Center.

Your tour can be combined with shopping at our Gift & Garden Center and lunch at our Cafe. First call 281-375-2100 to schedule the date for your tour. You will be asked to complete and submit a brief request form. After your tour date is confirmed, then call 281-375-2158 to make reservations for your group lunch at the Cafe.
