“What a Treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We ended up on one of the free walking tours on a Saturday. Our guide was knowlegable and we discovered many "treats" in this garden. We'll be back in other seasons.

“Worth the trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

What a lovely oasis in the center of Brooklyn. There are many different areas to visit within the gardens. I especially love the Rose Garden and the Japanese Pond.

“Beutiful Gardens even in November”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This would be fabulous to visit in spring or summer, but even in November this was worth it. There were still some flowers with blooms. The gardens are amazing, and with a visit to the Brooklyn Museum which is right next door, this was a great day!
