The gardens are pretty. You can learn a lot of science in a short time. Don't miss the bee hives and the herb garden.

Queens Botanical Garden has always been our favorite place to take classes about planting and other botanical related classes. We often just go for a relaxing walk and enjoy the sites of changing seasons. Expect about an hour or more for a thorough visit!

Years ago it was a free park where you can go, promenade and enjoyed very much. Suddenly they started to charge, without giving any service at all. Who managed this? I dont know. I neven visitd again!

We went to a wedding in the garden and it was absolutely gorgeous. We got a nice over cast day, not too hot or cold, and the flowers were in full bloom. The grounds are nicely kept, and their event space is amazing!

The park is small, luckily I did not pay for admission because I do not think it is worth the price.
