So most of the year, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden won't be as hot as it was August 23, 2014. And it was hot that day. But there are some cool nooks, shady glens and other places to keep your cool when visiting. It's really amazing that there's a lot of still-natural area right in the heart of the city. Kind... More

I don't know where to start. The whole place is majestic and totally interesting. From the variety of beautiful plant species to the outstandingly well designed structures. There were preparations being made for several super classy weddings towards the end of the day. I felt that I'd like to be invited to such a wedding in the near future, smile.... More

When I first moved to Brooklyn the 🌻Botanical Garden was my first attraction; it was a welcome gift of sorts.🗽 I feel so blessed and fortunate to bejust minutes away🏃 from this gorgeous use of valuable real estate.💰 I didn't want to leave and because it was my first cultural experience in Brooklyn it has a sentimental value as well....

I have to admit it has been a while since I have been there. Three generations of my family of really enjoyed it, however. One visit was simply a walk through, something to do day. My adult daughter and I spent maybe 2.5 hours wandering and enjoying. There are several distinct areas to the gardens and all were attractive. There... More

Small but well laid out garden with beautiful blossoming trees. The bonsai and succulent houses are also of extremely high quality. Take in when visiting the Brooklyn Museum.
