We arrived with a salad in our bag that we'd planned to eat later in the day but we were denied entry because of a stupid "No food allowed inside" rule. I'm getting tired of this crap in New York! I suspect they want us to spend more money once inside in their cafes.

Early spring visit with only daffodils and a few flowering magnolia trees in bloom and still what a spectacular garden this is. The noise of traffic all around it's unfortunate...but that's the city! So add the proximity to one of the best museums in the country, and your entire day (or days) can be filled with enlightening cultural activities.

Real nice Garden. The Japanese garden was definitely a hit for the family with all the fish/turtles swimming and the different trees. Also the area to see next to the food court such as the aquatic and desert gardens. Kids had great time walking around. We even joined the free tour which was informative to see what is native.

A must if you enjoy gardens, one of my favorites. Great trails, specious, plenty of seating and ample safe parking. Bring the kids.

Such a beautiful, calming spot. The garden is pretty vast, and divided up into a wide variety of different areas, covering everything from orchards, to marhsland, to forest, to market garden, plus fabulous hot houses (a welcome warm spot, since I visited in November!). Excellent modern toilets and a handy water fountain (because these things matter)...

whether it is a romantic date night, something educational and fun to do with young children, or just something to kill time, the botanic gardens is beautiful! I went with my children and we all had a great time. Watching children learn things for the first time is always so wonderful to see. I can't wait to go back for... More

It is a shame that the long winter in the north east US means that springs late this year because the botanic garden was little more than labels. The glass housewere open though and what little that was showing above ground was well kept. The gardens are free from 10 AM to Noon on Saturday and well worth a visit.

The Botanic Garden is really such a great thing to do in New York. Not only is it a beautiful and well maintained garden, but it is a very nice escape from the city. While some of the many parks around New York may also offer such an escape, the Botanic Garden is nice because the entry fee generally keeps... More
