When my girls were younger I used to visit here for the children's museum, to picnic on the grounds or just go to feed the ducks in the pond. I took a walk with my spouse the other day to areas I had not traveled before like the healing garden. It is amazing how large, serene and beautiful the plants... More

Absolutely beautiful grounds. I take a lot of photos and this is one of my favorite spots to go in Staten Island. Very calming, peaceful and serene place to just relax.

The grounds are rather large and very pretty and well worth the walk from the Staten Island Ferry. The walk took about 20 minutes but it would be just as east to get a bus there if necessary. In the summer there are often events for families.

went there for a festival - amazingly well kept gardens and friendly staff around the park. The secret garden made me laugh.

I walk my dog here every day. OK, I'm a local! So every day I walk from Henderson Avenue is the rear (parallel to Richmond Terrace in the front, where the buses are) and go thru the allee and take a left down into the 911 Memorial meditation garden. Look for the small fountain (not the one in the front... More

Nice if you like plants and gardens. Very relaxing plan on walking because there is parking only at entrance and you have to walk to the exhibits. There is a small historical museum about Staten Island and a larger marine musese with 3 floors with a very nice gift shop

Some stuff was in bloom but not everything. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it was. If you go, I would either wait until after April which is when I went or try calling the place and asking what the grounds look like. It was a nice place though. They had a 9/11 Memorial there. An actual... More

As a resident of Staten Island's wonderfully diverse North Shore, I am a regular visitor to this cultural treasure. It has it all - museums, Art Lab classes, botanical gardens, broad pastures, vine-covered walkway, Chinese Scholar's Garden, Meditative Garden, wild areas, quaint, smaller brick buildings, majestic music hall, etc. Go to the website to plan your day. A snack bar... More

Tried to visit gallery and scholar's garden but couldn't find the ticket office even after checked visiting hours and followed the sign.

The grounds are very lovely. The Chinese scholar garden is very nice, but it needs some maintenance, probably because of the funding cuts made to the park's budget. The sailor's retirement buildings are impressive, but there is little to see by paying the entrance fee. The gardens are the high point. Also, the little cafe in the gardens serves very... More
