Good place to take a walk and do some photo opportunities sessions. Wedding reception that we attended was not very ideal.

Botanical Gardens usually have nice landscaped areas highlighting flowers and other plants. They are artistically sculpted out. Ot it's a learning center with carefully signed species. Big disappointment on our visit there today. The Main entrance off Main Street had large swaths of grass, but very little landscaped. The nicest landscaped area was the Wedding Garden which was locked to... More

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.
