The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is ever changing and expanding, it seems. If you go one season for the cherry blossoms in Spring, it will seem totally different than the equally vibrant summer attractions. For a somewhat small space, compared to the Bronx Botanic, it's topographic variety of ponds, hills, and groves are amazing. It includes a conservatory where a range... More

I have been a lifetime visitor to the Gardens since my grandmother used to take me there as a child. Simply, if you love gardens and you are in Brooklyn it is always worth the time to stroll. Obviously, the Spring is stunning but they have year-round activities as well.

So scenic and serene, colors jumping out at you from all angles. Beautiful place to walk or stroll. If you truly love plants and flowers, you will become dreamy eyed with a smile on your face.

I went in November and most of the does has post but it was still nice to walk around and see the pond and fish and the roses were still all in bloom. They have exhibits inside and you could spend an hour or so walking thru... More

Came in early winter, when much of the foliage has wilted, but still had a great time walking around and enjoying the beautiful winter scenery. The park is very easy to navigate and slopes gently in places.

An oasis in downtown Brooklyn. Close to Park Slope and Brooklyn heights these gardens are bautiful in the Spring after a long cold winter. Fun for all the family.

There was a lot of work, looked like upgrades, improvements, going on. We had the good fortune of being there with a local who was able to explain the development and direction of the facilities. Highly recommend a tour or a local guide to really get the meaning and intent.
