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

Was very surprised to hear that admission to the park was only $4.. Well u know that saying "you get what u... 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.

Stopped in here on the way to the airport in early April. Not much was in bloom and the grounds were fairly small. Overall, it seemed pretty much like a public park with some more signs. About the only upside is that they charge $3 for entrance and so it's fairly quiet in the garden. If you're here to see... More

It's just like any other botanical garden but a smaller. If you like visiting botanical gardens, it's a nice place but, I wouldn't travel far to go. I live not too far away. For me it was refreshing.

The Queens Botanical Gardens was revamped several years ago and it now looks more beautiful than ever before. It still remains somewhat small when compared to the botanical gardens in the Bronx and Brooklyn, but if you live nearby, you must visit this place at least once a year. Don't miss the lovely fountain and pool close to the front.... More

A must for the traveler, if you go here you will find the biggest chinese- corean community in New York City. and the best kept secret garden in the city. Every morning (8-10) taichi qigong sessions open to the public. With 4 dollars regular entrance or 2 dolars seniors/students you will have a different and interesting experience.
