I visited on a day off, in early November. It was free admission and the place was very quiet. It's pretty small as NY botanical gardens go, but well worth the visit for fall colors and a variety of foliage. I'm eager to see it in full summer bloom.

The place is like a little park inside the city, roses and different flowers could be seen everywhere with butterflies flying and birds singing, not a huge Garden but I like it!

This is not a sophisticated botanical garden if you are looking for an eye-opening experience. But it is a friendly garden for the community in Flushing, where families spend time together. It is great to go there on Sunday after 4 pm for a free visit. Spending some time to see roses and CA wild flowers or to watch sunset... More

Perhaps going at the end of the growing season is not the best time to go to a botanical garden but it seemed to me that there was a lot of walking and not a lot of flower beds or variety to the plants.

Nice place very peaceful. But it is very hard top park around there and you have to be careful where you park.

I live in Jackson Heights which is rather sparse as far as outdoor greenery goes, so this is a frequent destination for me. A usually painless ride on the 7 train to Mets Willets Point and walk through Corona Park, going in through the Parking Garden. I have a community access membership so can take advantage of the uncrowded daytime.... More

If you live or for some reason are already in Queens it is worth a visit -- particularly in the summer when many of the flowers are in bloom. Certainly smaller and less impressive than Brooklyn and the Bronx, without the extensive conservatories the others have, but still worth dropping by if you like botanical gardens.
