Even in mid fall the roses were still blooming. This was an awesome walk around the park and fun to see how well preserved everything is. The tree leaves were many colors from yellow to dried brown. The fountains were not on as they only operate in the summer. Well kept, clean and a nice outdoor thing to do.

I visited 2 weeks ago when admission was free (Wednesday 3-5pm). I have previously visited the New York & Brooklyn botanical gardens and the Queens version doesn't really compare. It is more like a large park. There are a variety of trees and plants, but there isn't much land to meander around for a walk. The visitors center/shop is also... More

This is always a great location to spend time with kids and educate them while having fun. The collection is amazing, the cafe/restaurants are great and also the gift store. My favorite is the train show during Christmas holidays, kids love this. Prepare to spend all day there.

I recently discovered the Queens Botanical Gardens, an unexpected delight for all to share. Minimal admission fee allows you to enjoy the grounds. New marketing team very eager to put this venue in the Queen map. Current orchid show is a beautiful partnership between Taiwan and the Gardens.

Little place of heaven in the middle of bustling neighborhood. Reminder of how lovely a quiet little garden can be, Pack a picnic, bring the kids. Especially in Spring when the tulips are blooming.

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