Very nice gardens. A little effort to get there from Manhattan, but worth it. Also, if you like Jerk chicken, there's a great hole in the wall catercorner to the park.

Altough the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx is far more extensive and well known, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden is, in my opinion, more interesting. Its compact size allows the visitor to see almost all of it in one day, The seaonal blooms are exquisite, especially the cherry blossoms and the rose garden in season. There are other gardens...

We visited in December, not the perfect time of year for appreciating plant life in NY but it was definitely worth our time. AND made us want to come back during many different times of the year .... to see the cherry blossoms, at least. It's laid out very well and is quite peaceful. The residents who live nearby must...

It's impossible to spend a whole day here and see all you want to see. Everything from the Shakespeare garden to the perfumed garden, the special areas created as if you were in another hemisphere, let alone country, are all brilliantly done. The lilac weekend is sublime, and it's possible to have some peace and quiet if you go on... More

Would like to come back in the spring. If you are interested in things that grow, you would enjoy this.

Great place to visit when trees are in bloom. Kids can run around safely. No traffic or crosswalks. You cannot bring food or drink into this place though. They may stop you at the entrance if you look like you have a picnic. If you want to picnic- go next door to the prospect park entrance.
